Introducing Hora (Amorgos)

The old capital of Hora sparkles like a snowdrift across its rocky ridge. It's capped by a 13th-century kastro and guarded by windmills that stand like sentinels on the surrounding cliffs. There’s a distinct veneer of sophistication, not least in the handful of trendy bars and shops that enhance Hora’s appeal without eroding its timelessness. The main activity here is wandering, amply rewarded with beautiful village settings around each corner.

The bus stop is on a small square at the edge of town where there’s also car parking. There’s an ATM next to a minimarket right at the entrance to Hora and the village also has a post office and police station on the main road. Hora’s archaeology collection is on the main pedestrian thoroughfare.
