Potamos on Amorgos

Potamos lies just a stone's throw above Aegiali. If one did not know that it was a separate village, one would think that Potamos was part of Aegiali. But such is not the case. Should I be picky, as I should, it is two villages: the lower village is called Kato Potamos and the upper is called Ano Potamos.

Potamos is yet another of the traditional mountain villages of Amorgos. Thanks to the nearness to Aegiali and the fine sandy beach, the development has gone faster in Potamos than, for example, in Tholaria and Langada. By that I do not mean that Potamos are exploited, for it is certainly not. Here are a few pensions, tavernas and cafes.

 

Kato Potamos and Ano Potamos are two of the many beautiful mountain villages of the island of Amorgos.

The village is completely free of traffic. If you drive to Potamos, you park below the village and then you walk the many steps up, and then continue up even more steps, and even more and so forth. If you go on a hike from Aegiali you should have strong legs because the way up is cruel. The nicest, and obviously the most difficult way to approach Potamos is to hike between the monastery of Hozoviotissa and Aegiali. When you see Potamos in front of you, you know that it is not long until you reach the sea and a refreshing swim.
