Holidays in Amorgos Greece cannot be complete without a visit at Chora, the charming capital of the island, one of the best preserved in the Cyclades.
The medieval settlement is perched on the hills and is dominated by a rock crowned with remains of the 13th-century fortress and wrapped by stark white houses, countless churches, and a variety of shops, cafés and restaurants scattered in the winding cobble-stoned alleys. The windmills lining one of the hill tops are among the trademarks of the settlement.
Chora Amorgos is the ideal place for romantic strolls along the paved streets, long dinners in the traditional tavernas to enjoy local delicacies, as well as visits to some of the most interesting sights. Visit Gavras’ tower which is a Venetian mansion housing the archaeological museum, byzantine churches with beautiful sculptures, windmills and of course the castle, all portraying the long history of Amorgos and contributing to the unique atmosphere of the place. Not far from Chora lies the trademark of the island, the Chozoviotissa Monastery one of the most dramatic sights on Amorgos, definitely worth a visit.
