Spring Destination: Amorgos is the Aegean at its Finest
In the spring, a network of trails makes for incredible walks on Amorgos
. Dramatic landscapes covered in wildflowers are set against the blue of the Aegean.
The monastery of Hozoviotissa
It is worth climbing the 300 steps that lead you to one of the most impressive monasteries in Greece. The Byzantine Monastery of Hozoviotissa is spread over 8 levels with a total height of 40m. The impressive structure is Amorgos’s most iconic sight.
Also belonging administratively to the Hozoviotissa Monastery is the Ai Giorgis Valsamitis located a few kilometers outside Chora. The church here is worth a visit, built on a spring that once formed the basis of an ancient ‘water oracle’ of Apollo.
The Chora of Amorgos
Amorgos’s Chora (or main village) is one of the most beautiful in the Cyclades, built in such way so as to be not visible from the sea as a form of protection from pirates. Countless churches, charming cafes, winding small flagstone streets, and the characteristic Cycladic white and blue homes add to its picture-perfect charm.
