Worth the stairs. The best window with a view in Greece! Breathtaking view of the sea. Kind monk treating you raki and water and telling the story of the monastery. Don't miss it

Not easy to get to the monastery in the heat but the result is worth it: quiet, plastered to the cliff with a great view

When in Amorgos do not miss a visit to this monastery. There may be many steps to climb for the monastery does sit 300 metres above the sea but you will not be disappointed. You will need a hat and water in the strong sun! The monastery itself is quite small being only 5 metres deep but 40 metres wide... More

One of the most important Monastery from the Cyclades, some steps to walk, outside and inside the monastery. Ther are rules in terms of clothes to enter on the monastery, no shorts.

If in Amorgos you can't miss a visit to this monastery. Go up the stairs for stunning views of the Aegean, and a generous treat by the monks.

The Monastery of Panagia Hozoviotissa is extraordinary . You approach it via a steep and long set of stairs and it appears to be glued to the side of the cliff. Once there you are met by a guide who takes you on a short tour of the building and then you are offered a small beverage and a sweet... More

A remarkable monastery non the less. No matter what one believes in, you have to visit that amazing monastery. Climbed in a vertical rock, you cant stop asking how they did it, and why, all answers can be found in the frienly monks that reside in. The steps are worth the view from the top balcony where one can actually... More

Must visit if you are going to Amorgos. It is located on mountain top. It is a small monastery. You have to climb quite a number of stairs, so please be prepared to climb around 1- 2 km stairs.
