Walking path 6 “Valsamitis”
Katapola – Agios Georgios Valsamitis – Agia Marina – Minoa
This easy walk of natural beauty starts from Katapola and continues to the monastery of Agios Georgios Valsamitis. The area has a variety of wells that flow during periods of rain. On the way back you pass near the church of Agia Marina and ends up in Ancient Minoa, on a hill above Katapola. Today remains the city walls, stadium, gymnasium and temple of Dionysus. On the same hill are ruins that confirm the presence of people on Amorgos from 4000 BC. The area was a cemetery in the Cycladic period and here is the Mycenaean tomb that has the shape of an arc. The walk ends in Katapola at the road leading to the temple of Saint Nicolas.
