MORE ABOUT AMORGOS GREECE

Amorgos Greece is located in the Aegean sea and belongs to the Cyclades islands group. Despite being a quiet island, Amorgos island became popular thanks to Luc Besson’s movie “The big blue”, which was filmed there!

The most popular site of the island is Panagia Hozoviotissa, an impressive Amorgos monastery, perched on a rocky cliff above the sea!
