The high mountains and the inaccessible treacherous coast were Amorgos' great happiness when enemies and pirates ravaged at the worst in the Cyclades. The islanders built their villages in the mountains to protect themselves, the villages where difficult to detect from the sea and even more difficult to attack.

The oldest villages are now deserted: Minoa above Katapola, Ancient Arkesini below Vroutsi and Asfondilitis in the mountains between Chora and Aegiali.

There are two coastal villages - Katapola and Aegiali - and several mountain villages, all of them are fantastic. The villages in the mountains belong to the nicest and most genuine in the Cyclades, and all should be visited.
