Amorgos Chora

General information

Chora Village Amorgos: This is the medieval capital of Amorgos, situated 400m above sea level. It is an amazing village hidden behind the mountains, dominated by a 13th century Venetian castle, the Kastro.

Surrounded by lovely windmills and full of beautiful Byzantine and early Christian churches, outspread white houses and stone paved little streets, this little wonder reminds of a labyrinth and has an incredible and particular atmosphere.

The rough paved main square, Plateia Loza, is amazing, with its little cafes lying under the shadow of the huge eucalyptus trees located in the middle of the Plateia. Chora has the only post office of the island, a police department and medical centre.

There are no hotels in this calm little town, so the only way to spend the night in this amazing atmosphere is to look for one of the many rooms to let. Chora also has some nice places to eat, with authentic Greek tastes, but also to drink and to enjoy a superb night. From Chora, buses depart for the fabulous Hozoviotissa Monastery.
