Amourgeles is located at a distance of 38 km from Heraklion and is built on the road axis Alagni-Panorama-Stironas-Amourgeles, in the east side of Amigdalokefalo hill.
We meet for the first time the name of the village as Amurgielle in a document of the Venetian archives. Since then it is recorded in all the consequent censuses.
In the period of Ottoman occupation, the village had exclusively Muslim residents and seems to have been one of those villages whose inhabitants were forced to become Muslims in order to keep their properties.
With the exchange of populations between Turkey and Greece that took place in 1922, and the abandonment of the village by its Turkish population, many refugees from Asia Minor were installed here, bringing their own cultural habits and way of life with them.  They cultivated vines making the production of raisins and grapes the main product of the village.
Today Amourgeles produces also olive oil, livestock, and horticulture in the irrigated gardens and fields of the village from the natural springs that are scattered all around the countryside. 
A river tributary, Nispitas, one of the main streams of Anapodiaris River, accumulates most of its water from here and from the surrounding countryside.
