One of the most beautiful "chora"in Cyclades.Very clean, very nicely maintained, beautiful churches, houses, small gift shops, cafes, restaurants.
The only disadvantage is that it is usually very windy, so choose a day that in the rest of the island is totally calm.

“The most beautiful Chora at Cyclades”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

Chora of Amorgos is the most beautiful Chora at Cyclades. Greeks call Chora the capital of an island. It is a very quiet place, with beautiful churches, little squares everywhere, and a long row of windmills. You will find lots of small streets with flowers like bougainvillaea and trees, combining a fantastic setting, great for taking pictures. Walking the small streets there are tourist shops, cafés and very romantic restaurants. If someday come to Amorgos remember to visit Chora. You will not forget it. You are going to love it!

High in the hills of a quiet island lies this village. Lack of easy access protects it from the gigantic cruise ships. The wonderful charm of the people and the narrow winding streets makes one want to relax here for an extended period.

“Beautiful village”
Reviewed 12 May 2014

Hora is the main town of each island in Greece. I went this summer in Amorgos, a little island in the east of Cyclades. It was for me a complete change of scene. You are in the middle of Mediterranean Sea, nothing looks like something you know. The nature, the sun, the people, the landscape, the goats, the food…everything is perfect. The place isn’t touristic at all. I went there because I had greek friends. It was really great to be far from occidental fast civilization…

We had the chance to attend the traditional celebration in Hora. I loved that ! We got free food and drink, the atmosphere was very special, full of greek history and good mood. We learnt to dance their traditional steps with old local people. I advise everyone to try this!
Hora is a very cute village, with very beautiful buildings and good places to visit. There are several great bars and restaurants to go too. Evidence that’s a very attractive place : some scenes of a French film were shot on this island and in Hora! (Le Grand Bleu – Luc Besson)

No to be missed either : the monastery Chozoviotissa, build in the side of the mountain.

(Sorry for my English, I'm Belgian.)
