Amazing architecture perched on the side of a cliff in breathtaking surroundings. It is a 20 minute hike from the Chora, or you can drive to the parking lot and walk up the steps.

There is a strict dress code which is long pants for men, dresses or skirts for women and no bare shoulders. We put jeans on over our shorts in the parking lot before the climb.

The monk that greeted us made no sound whatsoever during our 20 minute stay. We wondered whether he had a vow of silence. He seated us in a wonderful room upstairs and served us Naxion liqueur.

This is one of the highlights of Amorgos and not to be missed.
