Amorgos is one of the most eastern islands of the Cyclades. It's an isand with a long shape, it has high mountains and has a surface area of 117 km2. Amorgos is a rugged island where time seems to have stood still. The first impression upon arrival might be a little intimidating, but once on solid ground Amorgos appears to be a very friendly and unspoiled island.
The capital, Chora, is an unspoilt town with white cubic houses, beautiful churches and a lot of old windmills. It is a quiet place with narrow streets, squares with trees and a few small tavernas and souvenir shops.
The main tourist attraction of the island is the monastery of Chozoviotissa. This small monastery seems to be glued to the mountains and could be reached by a small walk or donkey-ride.
The small pearly white Chozoviotissa Monastery is built against a steep cliff, It's a truly beautiful sight.
Katapola and Aegiali are the ports of the island. Visit both villages for lunch and a brief exploration.
