Outside the village of Pirgou, on the road to Asites, there is a sign to the church of Zoodohos Pigi. The church of Zoodohos Pigi was part of the monastery of Gorgoliani. It is in a very beautiful location with a view of the valley below and the mountains on the other side. Trees and vineyards, complete the scene. Recently large springs have been found nearby. Two aisles of the church remain, but it must have been a three-aisled basilica. There are stone reliefs outside the church. An old mill and an old wine press have been found in the church yard. The church has been renovated and the surrounding yard is very pleasant.
