Amorgos Chora

General information

Chora in Amorgos: Chora is the picturesque capital of Amorgos, situated 400 meters above sea level. It is a charming village hidden behind mountains, dominated by a 13th-century Venetian Castle.

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

The main square (Loza Square) is a lovely area with little cafes under the shadow of the huge eucalyptus trees. Chora has the only post office on the island, a police department and a medical center.

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 rooms to let.
Chora also has some nice places to eat, serving authentic Greek tastes, but also to drink and to enjoy a superb night.

From Chora, buses depart for the imposing Hozoviotissa Monastery, as well as Katapola, Aegiali, and other areas on the island.
