About for Amorgos
Amorgos is the easternmost island of the Cyclades island group and the nearest island to the neighbouring Dodecanese island group in Greece.
It is an island with rich cultural heritage and very wild beauty that causes awe in your eyes from the first moment you reach it.
In Amorgos you will taste the hospitality of the Greek people. Its inhabitants were tested for many years as it had been designated an island of the barren line.
They were deprived of communication and now that the island is developing at a fast pace, its people generously offer unforgettable moments to those who choose to visit it.
They are good, ambitious people who, despite the tourist growth of recent years, remain pure and faithful to the traditions of their place. During summer, festivals are organised and customs that last from the past are revived. So that the old can remember and the young can learn…
The island with the intense Cycladic colour and the untouched, from the passage of time, its traditional character will impress you mainly because here the old meets the new and they coexist harmoniously without altering the other.
Amorgos doesn’t only offer beautiful beaches and stunning landscapes but also ancient monasteries that are worth visiting.
