Amorgos is a quaint and beautiful island where the tradition is still vivid. Wild landscapes and road routes that “float” above the sea, on a land that combines cliffs with some unexpectedly beautiful beaches. The nature of Amorgos compensates the visitor. Ancient temples, hiking paths among flowers and herbs, historical and religious monuments. Amorgos invites you to visit her again and again. She has worldwide fans and loyal friends. Aegiali is one of the two main ports of the island and is located in the northern part of Amorgos. The area, according to findings, is inhabited since ancient times. In Vigla, you can see the ruins of the ancient city. Aegiali consists of three small, beautiful, traditional villages. Lagada, Tholaria and Potamos. Numerous tourists visit Aegiali while her magnificent beach-a beach with crystal clear water, is a magnet for swimmers. Nearby, there are the beautiful beaches of Levrossos and Chochlakas.
Island’s most important festival is this of Agia Paraskevi on the 26th of July at Kato Meria. It is celebrated with contributions from the locals. A custom that has remained unaltered over time and gives the opportunity to visitors to taste traditional patatato, vinegar, local wine and Eptazimo bread. Another important festival is at the Assumption of the Virgin. It takes place at the Monastery of Panagia Panochoriani, just above Lagada village in Aigiali.
