History & Culture Amorgos Greece Informations

Settlement began on Amorgos in the late 5th millennium BC at the hill-top of Minoa. The 3rd millennium BC marks the island’s first apogee, when it was an important centre of the Cydadic culture. With the arrival of Ionian settlers the 3 cities of historic times emerged Aegiali, Minoa and Arkesini.

The arrival of refugee monks with the icon from Khoziba in Palestine in the 9th century, followed by the subsequent founding of the Chozoviotissa Monastery allegedly in 1088, was of considerable importance for the history of the island. In the medieval time it passed in the sovereignty of Francs and finally in the Venice Domination. But Amorgos had to face the pirates’ raids and in 1540 it became formally a Turkish possession.

In 1835, the island was include in the new Kingdom of Greece. In the same year a devastating fire spread from Aigiali and burned the oak forests of Mount Kroukelos, radically altering the landscape and ecology of the northern end of the island.
