Αμοργός: Όταν ο κινηματογράφος ανακάλυψε το απέραντο γαλάζιο

Η Αμοργός στο παρελθόν ήταν ένα ακόμα νησί της άγονης γραμμής, με ελάχιστους αφοσιωμένους επισκέπτες που αψηφούσαν το μακρύ ταξίδι σε αυτή την άγρια οροσειρά καταμεσής του πελάγους. Το 1988, ο Luc Besson επέλεξε την Αμοργό ως την κύρια τοποθεσία για την ταινία του «Απέραντο Γαλάζιο». Παρακινημένοι από την περιέργεια, επισκέπτες από όλο τον κόσμο έκαναν το ταξίδι για να ανακαλύψουν τα κρυστάλλινα νερά και το εντυπωσιακό τοπίο που δεσπόζει στην ταινία. Η Αμοργός έγινε συνώνυμη του Απέραντου Γαλάζιου.
Το FindinGreece θα σας ταξιδέψει σε αυτό το μαγευτικό τόπο, από τις διάσημες παραλίες και το μοναδικό Μοναστήρι του, μέχρι τα χωριά στα βουνά, όπου η ζωή παραμένει αμετάβλητη εδώ και αιώνες. Τα πανηγύρια, τα τοπικά προϊόντα και ένα καλά διατηρημένο δίκτυο πεζοπορικών μονοπατιών θα σας βυθίσουν σε ένα πραγματικό ταξίδι στο χρόνο.

FindinGreece has designed a whole variety of walking tours, guided tours, and hiking tours on Amorgos to introduce you to its history, culture, traditions, gastronomy and local people.
Each one of our tour includes a visit to a cultural monument or a farm, a workshop, a traditional cafe, an old olive press and many other beautiful preserved places.
Before becoming the Island of the Big Blue, Amorgos has been a place of importance with a strong history and one of the center of the Cycladic civilization in the 4th Millenary BC. From the antiquity up to the 20th century the island had many up and downs as consequents of pirates attacks, change of powers (romans, Byzance, Venitians, turks, dictature…). Today we can explore this past through all the monuments, architecture but also local traditions. FindinGreece will take you through this wonderful land, from its famous beaches and landmark Monastery up to the mountain villages, where life has remained the same for centuries. Traditional festivals, local products and a well maintained network of hiking paths on Amorgos will immerse you to a true travel in time.

Although Amorgos is a strong candidate for the top list of summer festivals, you would be surprised with the celebrations taking place right in the heart of winter. Experience the local Carnival and traditional custom of “Kapetanios” or join the celebration of Panagia Chozoviotissa, the landmark of the island, on November 21st.
