Sights

Some of Amorgos’ most important sights are undoubtedly Aghia Triada’s tower  in Arkesini and the ruins of ancient Minoa on Mountoulia hill in Katapola.

The tower dates from the 4th century B.C. and is considered one of the most important monuments in the Cyclades. In ancient Minoa the visitor can see parts of the walls of the city, the gymnasium and Dionysus’ temple dating back to 4000 B.C.Excavations in both sights are conducted for years by the archaeologist Lila Maragou.
Other important sights include:
Aghios Georgios Valsamitis church (access through the road leading from Chora to Kato Meria).
Aghios Ioannis Theologos (on the mountainsides of Mt Kroukelos in Aegiali. Access to the church by footpath No 6; duration: one hour and 20 minutes from Langada.)
Ancient Aegiali, with its acropolis, Vigla, in Tholaria.
The Castle (Kastro) in Chora.
The archaeological museum in Chora, housed in the magnificent Gavras Tower, waiting for the visitor to admire findings (sculptures, statues, pottery, etc.) from all historical periods of the island.
