Pythagorion – Samos

Pythagorion is a cosmopolitan destination, bustling with life and teeming with visitors every summer. The small town is built on the south-eastern edge of the island, 12 km from Vathy, the main town and administrative capital of Samos. Travellers are captivated by its beaches, its charming Aegean architecture, its vibrancy and its beautiful nightspots. But modern Pythagoreio also hides great treasures for lovers of history and archaeology, since it is also a very ancient settlement of great archaeological significance.

The Argonaut Ancaeus, whose son Agapenor later became king of Arcadia, is considered to be the first settler of ancient Samos. Excavations at the Castle in Pythagoreio indicate that the area was inhabited from the Neolithic period at least. The ancient port of Samos was located where the town is today. Polycrates, ruler of Samos in the second half of the sixth century BC organized the construction of a number of important building projects which still impress the visitor today with their excellent standards of construction.
