Cyclades Islands Archaeological Sites - Ancient Minoa (Amorgos Island)

The ruins of ancient Minoa, one of the three ancient cities of Amorgos, are found at a distance of 3km. from the harbour of Katapolon, on the southern side of a hill. According to archaeological research and the important discoveries of excavations, it appears that the region of the city Minoas was inhabited from the Neolithic era.

The archaeological excavations also brought to light the ruins of a settlement dating from ancient times. The ruins of the settlement date from the 11th century B.C. and according to the historical sources were founded by Ionian settlers. The continuous inhabitation of the region made the rescue of buildings of the geometric era impossible. However, marble ruins of a temple dating back to the 3rd Century BC have been saved.
