First of all, Amorgos has become a tourism destination in the ’90s due to the well-known film “The Big Blue”. The island is an ideal holiday destination because it does not have a large number of tourists compared to other cosmopolitan islands of the Cyclades, and as a result, it combines carefree and quiet holidays!

Furthermore, it is an authentic Cycladic island, with local residents that their smiles are anything but welcoming! They write about the picturesque village of Chora Amorgos with its numerous churches, the smaller chapel of Greece, as well as its Castle! It is surrounded by mountains, while it has a lot of taverns and also is very close to the  Monastery of Hozoviotissa, where the monks will treat you with a liqueur i.e. Amorgian psimeni raki.
