Chora

Hora is the capital of Amorgos, built on the Southeastern side of the mountain of Profitis Elias among other smaller hills. It has 414 inhabitants, according to the Census of 2001. It impresses its visitors with its elegance, its beautiful and rare architecture, its numerous churches and its Castle and its beautiful windmills. The location was picked, by the inhabitants of Amorgos in the olden times so that the village was not visible from the sea which gave them time to hide when pirates came to the island. The port of Hora is Katapola, where the first Horaites (people from Hora) came and built houses and shops when the Greek State in 1832 put an end to the depredations of pirates.
