ChoraAmorgos 840 08, Greece
Unseen from the sea, away from the blue waters surrounding the island, Chora of Amorgos stands in all its majesty on the top of a hill, overlooking the Aegean from 350 m. up above. After a glimpse of the mainland’s rugged beauty, with its imposing massifs, steep cliffs and island rubble walls during the journey towards the capital of the island, there comes the moment you reach one of the most beautiful Choras of the Aegean. The two squares, Kato and Apano Losa, the cobbled streets, the pristine white plateaus, the churches and the picturesque traditional cafès all demonstrate the insurmountable beauty of the settlement stretching around the rock of the Venetian Castle. While wandering, you will meet two-storey mansions, the arches of “Embrostiada”, windmills and Tower of Gavras (Pirgos tou Gavra), which houses the Archaeological Museum of Amorgos. Chora is 6 km away from Katapola and approximately 20 km away from Aegiali.
