  • Life mushrooms through the rock. The balcony of the Aegean. I think that there are no suitable ratings from them. The view takes your breath away, admire the human faith and perseverance were the first monks built the monastery and through areas of coming closer to God, despite all the anti-Christian conduct meetings (e.g. rasophoroi that showing off their expensive vestments or valuables). The loykoymaki and the psimmeni raki with which welcome guests are part of the experience. It is advisable to visit the monastery for your afternoon beating the Sun when rise to it. Don't forget to bring proper clothing if you do not want to wear the clothing of dubious cleanliness that give at the entrance of 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.
