Amorgos is the easternmost Cycladic island, located southeast of Naxos and northwest of Astypalaia.
It is an oblong island with successive massifs. On the western coast, there are few leeward creeks (the ports of Katapola and Aigiali), as well as some quiet beaches (Foinikes, Kato Kambos, Agios Pavlos, Paradeisia), in contrast to the eastern one, which is extremely steep.A remarkable image is created by traditional architecture (Chora, Aigiali, Arkesini) with lime-rendered houses with narrow façades, narrow slab-paved streets and vaulted arches connecting the upper floors of houses.Amorgos is distinguished for its archeological wealth, popular architectural art, and local customs
