Those who love walking will discover the well-preserved paths and the alleys of Amorgos and they will step on the trails of the people that have walked on them for millenniums.

The ancient street

The ancient street, or old stratum, connects Chora to Aegiali. It was the basic road through which people used to move and transport their goods in the past. For the walkers it is a rough, but very interesting route of 14.5 km (about 4 hours). Start by ascending from Chora towards Profitis Ilias to enjoy the sublime view. Afterwards you will pass by the very typical limestone rock called Trapezopetri which is connected to local legends and traditions. The path leads to the central asphalted road, but you can re-enter the path on the right and reach the location of Xenodohio.

Chora – monastery of Hozoviotissa

In this short but wonderful route (1.5km, 30 minutes) you will enjoy the view towards the northern coasts of the island. It goes downhill –except for the stairs at the entrance of the monastery of Hozoviotissa.

At ancient Arkesini

Beautiful and short route on the SW part of the island. The starting point is the settlement of Vroutsi and the ending point is the site of ancient Arkesini where the chapel of Panagia Kastriani is located. Large sections of the town’s wall are preserved on a steep and impressive landscape beside the sea. The length of the route is 2.8km and you will need 1 hour.     Ιnfo It is also worth walking from Lagada towards Tholaria (2.7 km, 1 hour), from Lagada towards Stavros, the peak of Krikelos and the mills of Machos (10.8 km, 4 hours), from Katapola towards Chora aller-retour (7 km, 2 hours and 30 minutes).
