Pyrgos is officially composed of two villages, the larger Kato Pyrgos (Greek: Κάτω Πύργος, Turkish: Aşağı Pirgo) and the smaller Pano Pyrgos (Πάνω Πύργος). Together they have 1058 inhabitants. Pyrgos is the only Cypriot town located on the Morphou Bay controlled by the Republic of Cyprus. Due to its location, being surrounded by the Troödos Mountains, the Turkish controlled exclave of Kokkina, and the Green Line, it is rather isolated and difficult to reach and gets significant numbers of visitors only in August during summer vacation.
