Pyrgadikia (Greek: Πυργαδίκια) is a Greek village in the Chalkidiki peninsula. It is located in the south-east part of Chalkidiki (approximately 110 km south-east of Thessaloniki), built on the coast of Siggitikos bay (part of Aegean sea). It is part of the Aristotelis municipality and the Panagia municipal unit. The population of the village is 320 residents according to 2011 census. The central church of the village is dedicated to Panagia and celebrated every year on the eight of September.[2]

History

The name of the village probably derives from the phrase "peri Gardikeia" (around Gardikeia) that ended up to Pyrgadikeia and finally Pyrgadikia. During the Byzantine era, the village was mentioned by its current name. After the Greco-Turkish War, many refugees from the village of Afthoni (located on the Marmara Island) relocated to Pyrgadikia. Today the educational and cultural society of Pyrgadikia is named Afthoni after the village of the same name.[3]
