The city was founded by Giorgos Tsernotas who during the Ottoman period found a treasury and reported to the Sultan Selim I the discovery. As a gift he was declared owner of the area of Pyrgos. He build a small castle "pyrgos" from which the name of the city is derived.

King Otto of Greece visited two times Pyrgos: 27 October 1833 and 8 May 1840 with his wife Amalia. In 1840 and 1848 farmers of Pyrgos revolted against the King demanding not to pay taxes for their products, a privilege they had in the Ottoman period.

During the second world war, in 1941, 700 Italian soldiers arrived in Pyrgos, later German troups, who finally left Pyrgos on 4th September 1944.
