One the best choras I have ever visited in my life. A little bit more steppy thant the chora in Folegandros, a little bit less touristic. This one is more rustic (less touch up for visitors) and "wild" (the windy could be strong over there).

We walked through the small town earlier in the day on our way up to Chora, which I would say is just as fun and beautiful as the sight from Chora. It can be windy with a chill I Would recommend bringing a light jacket with.

this is the medieval capital of Amorgos, situated 400m above sea level. It is an amazing village hidden behind the mountains, dominated by a 13th century Venetian castle, the Kastro. 10 windmills on top, 1 windmill on bus stop. Full of beautiful Byzantine and early Christian churches, white houses, stone paved little streets, this is an incredible and particular atmosphere.... More

Amorgos is probably my favourite island of Cyclades. I really enjoyed staing here. The Chora is beautiful. Definitely a must see

Even if in the north of Amorgos, it is worth a day out (only 2 euros each way) on the bus. This is a traffic free traditional Greek village, many places to eat down winding sloping "streets". A jumble it appears to be, but best explored, no chance of getting lost - do try to get to the several windmills... More

Amorgos chora is a place inside the dreams of every traveller. All the houses are white, small with blue windows, built in the traditional way of cyclades. There are several places to eat very good food. On the hill next to chora there are old windmills, accessible to visitors. Is nice to walk around and get lost. On the 21st... More

People say that is the most beautiful Chora of Cyclades! I can't confirm that but I can say that the Chora of Amorgos is very beautiful! Very picturesque, cozy, traditional and with nice people! Visit the small tower and enjoy the view from up there!
