Katapola is the main harbor of Amorgos. This is a tender port.
Amorgos is the easternmost island of the GreekCyclades island group, and the nearest island to the neighboring Dodecanese island group.
Amorgos is packed with breathtaking sandy and rocky beaches that are located beneath imposing cliffs or lush hillside.
Like other Cyclades Islands, Amorgos has a priceless archeological and historical legacy. In Chora, the capital of Amorgos Island Greece, visitors can visit several wonderful sights. The jewel of Amorgos Island is the Byzantine Monastery of Panagia Chozoviotissa, which is a masterpiece of ecclesiastical architecture, built into a Cliffside. The icon of the Virgin Mary, located in the Monastery, is believed to be the work of Luke the Evangelist. The 13-th century Castle, located on the highest point in Chora is another impressive sight, with its walls and the Church of Agios Georgios.
The island was off the beaten track for tourists until the filming there of Luc Besson's movie The Big Blue made it well known.
