At Katapola, the main harbour of the island today and the location of the interesting church of Our Lady 'Katapoliani' (built on the site of a temple of Apollo), traces of ancient Minoa have come to light. Swimmers will be delighted by the superb beaches to be found in the vicinity. The whitewashed houses of the capital of the island, Hora or Amorgos, spread out beneath the Venetian castle which stands on the peak of the hill. The typical Cycladic architectural style of the double or 'twin' church is much in evidence here. The Archaeological Museum has finds from all over the island and is well worth a visit.
