Inland on Amorgos

The crew of Dora Mac took a motorcycle ride up to the Chora of Amorgos. We have recently learned that a Chora is the Greek word for settlement which on the majority of Greek islands are located inland high up in the mountains with a good view over the ocean. In this way the inhabitants could see pirates and other enemies approaching.
Close to the Chora of Amorgos is a monastery dug into the rock and with a beautiful view over the sea.
