“Traditional Cycladic Village”
Reviewed December 22, 2012

No cars allowed within the village. It has an officially "preserved" status, meaning no modern buildings and those either newly built or even renovated have to observe strict, traditional guidelines within the character of the region and Amorgos specifically. Charming, welcoming and warm atmosphere. Low-keyed, i.e. no dance clubs but more intimate cafe/bars with great music and some dancing. Some traditional "fiestas" celebrated in the public square of "Loza" with traditional music, food and dance--jam packed and boisterous fun.

“One of the most scenic villages in the Cyclades”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

The village build around a rock is very authentic: 32 churches, a lot of beautiful corners, a few windmills and no cars. You will need half a day to explore Chora

“One of the most beautiful”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

I heard people saying that is the most beautiful of the Choras! I will not say the same just because i haven't been to all of them! But if you are at this island and you won't visit its Chora you are definitely making a mistake!

“Chora, Amorgos: Indeed the prettiest capital of the Cyclades”
Reviewed July 29, 2012

Windblown and sunbathed, the capital of Amorgos is an amazing village, just 15 minutes from the port of Katapola and 25 from the more cosmopolitan port of Aegiali! Don't miss visiting the picturesque museum housed in the medieval mansion of Gavras (no relation to the Z director) and then have a cup of coffee next door, at Triporto, a fantastic cafe-snack bar that offers tastes all made from local products! The closest beach is Aghia Anna, the beach made famous from Luc Besson's film 'Le grand bleu', where indeed you will swim in the blue-est sea you can find!
