The Holy Church of Agios Nikolaos in Pyrgos of Ilia, is the metropolitan church of the city and has been designated as a "Monument of Newer Cultural Heritage". It is a typical example of ecclesiastical architecture of the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century, with various neoclassical elements, both externally and internally, and is considered an important landmark for the history of the city of Pyrgos due to its architectural and archaeological value. The church was built in 1897 on the site of a pre-existing church, but it was inaugurated in 1906. It is a three-aisled basilica with two spires to the west. The middle aisle of the church, which is elevated in relation to the sides, is covered with a double-pitched wooden roof, while the side aisles have a single-pitched roof. To the west is the narthex with the central entrance. In the upper part of the narthex are two gyneconites, placed at different levels. The interior decoration of the temple is dominated by marble.
