The village of Pagondas on the island of Samos in Greece

map Pagondas, Samos Pagondas is a mountain village in let's say the south-middle of the island of Samos on the route of Pirgos - Spatherei - Pagondas - Pythagorion. This route is one of winding roads through the pretty nature nd on your way you have beautiful views of the offshore islet Samiopoula. For Pagondas you must take an exit from the road itself, because it is not going through the the middle of the village. Pagondas has about 800 inhabitants and you will find few tourists here. It lies at about 180 meters altitude on the slopes of Mount Bournias and has beautiful views of other villages, the valley and the sea.

The name Pagondas comes from the island of Evia, where another village with the same name exists. There is a pleasant town square, a large church with a light blue dome and two bell towers, and there are a number of shops. The streets are narrow and steep. The population of Pagondas lives mainly from agriculture and olive growing and the village is surrounded by olive groves and fields of vegetables. There is also some silk production.

During the Turkish rule the village was called Krimizkioi, "red village" because of the red earth on which the village is located. Of this earth ceramics were made and the also the red tiles of the village roofs. Like around Pirgos, Koumaradei, Spatherei also the area around Pagondas was affected by major fires that raged over Samos in the year 2000.
