Donoussa Architecture

Donoussa is a small island of Cyclades located between Naxos and Amorgos. Like all the other Cyclades islands, the architecture of Donoussa distinguishes for its Cycladic architecture: narrow paved paths, the stone houses with flowered yards and the tiny churches all over the island.

Among the smallest but most picturesque Greek islands, Donoussa has kept an authentic traditional style among the centuries. In the Medieval ages, it was not inhabited as it was a base of pirates. After piracy was defeated in the Aegean Sea, in the middle 19th century, the island was inhabited by residents of Naxos and Amorgos. This is why most houses in Donoussa are less than a century old.

Visitors will find many hotels that have been created with respect to the traditional Cycladic architecture.
