Amorgos is an island of a particular natural beauty. It is a seductive island that will take you to the path of romanticism, sensuality and happiness. It stands on the east part of the Cyclades Islands and it is 136 nautical miles from Piraeus. It covers an area of 121 sq. km. and has approximately 1.500 inhabitants. Hora, the capital of the island, is built in the interior of the island and is filled with paved streets, arches, alleys and rocky steps.

Amorgos

When you are in Hora we suggest that you visit the Venetian castle, the medieval Tower of Gavras that today houses the archaeological museum, the monastery of Hozoviotissas and the old mansions.

Amorgos has two beautiful and safe ports; the port of Aegiali and the one of Katapola.The port of Aegiali has a heavy tourist action, showing at the same time all the characteristics of a traditional Greek fishing harbour. Aegiali is famous for the unique landscapes of rare beauty and the golden beaches, as well as the several ancient monuments and the wonderful little churches. Katapola is the main port of the island and is 5 km from Hora. It offers nice beaches and an intense nightlife. What will draw your attention, though, is the acropolis of the ancient Minoa, which is on top of the Moudoulia hill, offering a panoramic and impressive view of the Katapola bay and the blue Aegean Sea. It is also worth visiting the hydromancy, the church of Panagia Katapoliani and the remains of the temple of Pithios Apollonas. If you still haven't visited Amorgos, you have surely missed unparalleled experiences.

The only danger is that when you'll be there, the island's secretive charm combined with its seductive nature will transform you into its eternal fan and incurable lover...
