    Tucked away, a wonderful stop on any tour. The resident nun - the only one - will show you around this very small monastery, and offer you refreshments. Be sure to crawl to the spring well, to douse y...  more »

    In Amorgos are three monasteries that obligatorily must visit and Valsamitis among the three is the easiest to achieve, you come up with your own transportation at the front gate. Doesn't make you waste a lot of time and I normally do a stop when they are directed towards the South of the island. Even in this time of great tourist influx manages to retain its peaceful atmosphere and bucolic. Visiting in the morning from 9 to 13 and in the afternoon from 17 to 19. Always appreciated an offer or even better buy something. Recommended reading the book by James Theodore Bent on the Cyclades.

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.
