The Arkesini village is located at a distance of 15 km from Chora. In this village we come across little houses built at the slope of the white mountain Korakas. One thinks that they are about to slip and fall as then overlook the valley of Kato Meria and send off a sweet fragrance from their neat clean yards.
The 100 inhabitants employ themselves in cattle raising and fishing, just like most of the people of the island do. The imposing parish church of St. Onoufrios stands out at the outskirts of the village stressing the religious sentiment of the people. A visitor can also find a tavern, a general store, a cafe and rooms to let.
Arkesini was one of the three most ancient cities of Amorgos and the tower of Agia Triada, which is invisible from the sea, was erected at the fourth century B.C. It is believed that this tower consisted one of the fortresses of the ancient city and was built to protect the local people from any sort of raids..
