Amorgos is one that has stayed virtually untouched over time, and is a vacation spot that you can enjoy organic beauty and charm. It has some great beaches and the traditional architecture of the white houses against a backdrop of blue sea and sky make it a great place for a relaxing and peaceful holiday in Greece. The beauty of Amorgos is the thing that inspired Luc Besson the renowned filmmaker to film scenes of his film "The Big Blue" at the gorgeous beach of Agia Anna.
The most famous landmark of Amorgos is the monastery of Hozoviotissa, which is found on the slopes of
rock looking out over the blue waters and where you can enjoy some amazing views. The monastery starts back to the 11th century and is a short distance outside the capital town of Chora.
Chora is certainly a lovely village and a perfect location to wander around and enjoy the traditional setting. There are many other villages in Amorgos that are definitely worth checking out if you have the chance.
