We have chosen Pythagoreio as the location of Doryssa Hotels & Resorts due to its charm, historical value and wonderful position. The port takes its name after the legendary ancient Greek philosopher and mathematician, Pythagoras, who was born there in 570 BC. It is also an archaeological site of the ancient town of Samos, home to the Eupalinian aqueduct; a tunnel of 1,036m (3,399ft) built in the 6th century BC, which is considered a marvel of ancient engineering.
Together with the nearby settlement of Heraion, they are Samos island’s UNESCO World Heritage sites. Once a strategic port, today Pythagoreio is a quaint and colourful fishing village, dotted with fishing boats along its waterfront and an array of artisan shops and tavernas to explore. From Pythagoreio runs a long stretch of beach that of about 5 km, connecting it to the neighbouring settlement of Heraion.
