Chora

The Capital of Amorgos (“The Chora”) is one of the most beautiful cities both on Greek islands and the inland. It was built during the Trade dominance of Venice as a fortress against Pirates of all kinds and origins.

The Parvas Traditional cafe at the low City Entrance was – and still is – the main spot where the ‘elders’ have their early morning coffee to discuss the local affairs. In the winter nights, as well, this is the place to drink the local “psimmeni raki” as they call it – to keep themselves warm and  tight as heirs and members of the overall “local family”.

The history of the Parvas family, as recorded in the relative documentary, is very exemplary of the adverse life conditions and the strength in the people, not more than a decade ago…

It is no chance that today’s Town Hall, stands opposite to the Parvas Cafe porch.
