PYRGOS (Village) ASTEROUSSIOI
In the middle of the town on the south side of the street and clearly marked, is the fourteenth century church of Agii Georgios and Konstantinos. There are some well-preserved frescoes as well as some old inscriptions dating from 1314. The frescoes on the south aisle are unique in the Byzantine world since they present a series of events in the life of Byzantine Emperor Konstantinos the Great. Events from his birth, childhood, the crowning of his son and the battle on the Milvian bridge are shown.
