Informations
Population: 1.973
Description: In the heart of the Aegean Sea, is the island's "Deep Blue", Amorgos. It is the easternmost island of the Cyclades, in the northeast of Naxos. The island's name allegedly derived from the word Amorgos, commonly linokalami, a rare herb, which in antiquity gave their sought after Amorgians tunics, who mentioned in Lysistrata by Aristophanes. Already by the end of the 4th millennium BC there are traces of human presence on the island, while in antiquity Amorgos was one of the major centers of the Cycladic civilization. Following common history of the Cyclades, Amorgos joined the fledgling Greek state after the Revolution of 1821. Today Amorgos is one of the less prominent destinations of the Cyclades, offering an intense traditional color that is reflected both in the settlements of the island and the way of life. Picturesque villages and beaches with crystal clear water is what will meet guests here and it is no coincidence that most return. The transition to Amorgos can be done by ferry from Piraeus to one of the two ports of the island (Katápola and Amorgos), or from the nearby islands.
