Monastery of Hozoviotissa

An enchanting 11th century building, this monastery is dedicated to the Grace of Panagia, the Virgin Mary. Perched on the side of a cliff, it has stunning views of the Aegean, and is to this day inhabited by only 3 monks. A trip to Amorgos would not be complete without a visit to this stunning and unique landmark, home to a miraculous icon found in the sea below the cliff. Note that the dress code is strict: no shorts, no mini skirts, no bare shoulders, no women in trousers and, most of all, no exceptions.
