Visit to Agios Georgios

Amorgos is an island with very rich history, as it was in the center of the Cycladic civilization in antiquity. According to mythology, this was the island where Ulysses, was attracted  like a magnet by Goddess Kirki, while returning to Ithaca, and stayed there for 10 years. Due to the island’s special energy, a water Oracle dedicated to Apollo was built in ancient times, and the holy water is still in a cave, within the Monastery of St. George Valsamitis, which is built on the ruins of the Oracle. The same magnetism attracts wellness enthusiasts, who flock to Amorgos, for its strong revitalizing energy and the abundance of therapeutic herbs.  Amorgos is considered the perfect place for spiritual and physical uplift.

On the  5th, 6th, 7th and 8th  of November, 2021, there will be screenings in Aegiali, Chora, Katapola and South Amorgos, open to the inhabitants and visitors of Amorgos, who will have the chance to watch all the films, and draw information on current developments in the areas of culture and tourism.
