  • This monastery is as awesome as it gets. It's built literally IN the mountain! You have to walk something like 200-300 steps, but the view IS worth it! Do go in, do try the raki that they will treat y...  more »
  • Unique sample of ecclesiastical architecture of the island, the monastery of Panagia Chozoviotissa is the pride of the island and for good reason: after a walking ascent-recommended comfortable athletic shoes-where the view leaves stupefied, one arrives at Monastery-recovery model minimum free space/sample unique intelligence, develops in height into five floors overlooking the endless blue of the Aegean sea-legs lies the Agia Anna beach of "Le Grand Bleu". Inside the benchmark the miraculous picture of Virgin Mary of Hozoviotissa, which according to tradition came miraculously from Palestine: after the small church of the monastery, one passes for treat-delight, baked raki, fresh cold water in also Lilliputian archontariki, while you can admire the spectacular views to the sea coming out on the adjacent balcony-terrace. Great location-visit remains memorable to everyone!!

  • Monastery built on a rock cliff. 300 stairs to go up but the view is awesome! You should also wear trousers or long dress.
  • Breathtaking! Must visit, whatever religion you believe or not. Strict rules about the appropriate clothing. Bring yours otherwise long clothes will be given to you there, not so clean. Rocky steps about a quarter of walking. Monastery closes at 19.00 but still the place is visitable. It's 300 metres high from the sea. Name taken from Hozova place of Palestin. It was built around 900 a.c. Awesome view, excellent stuff serves local raki
  • Unique place. If you don't mind the stairs you must visit this place for the excellent view.
  • The perfect blue -white
  • You must visit this place. The view is magnificent. There are very strict rules about the appropriate clothing to enter the monastery.

Where to stay in Amorgos

While Amorgos boasts a number of hotels and other lodging options, the best way to experience the culture of the island (at the best price) is to rent a room in a guesthouse or shared home. These possibilities are available in both of the major port cities on the island, Katapoula and Aeigali. Aeigali is also home to the island's campgrounds and several complexes with rooms for rent. If you prefer to stay inland, consider the hilltop village of Hora, one of the most scenic spots on the island, with lovely rooms and other self-catering accommodations.
