The Villages of Naxos

Visit and tour the villages of Naxos for a unique experience, and journey into the history and past of the island, with myths and heroes, medieval legends, folk customs that survive intact to this day.

Coastal areas are refreshed by Aegean Sea breezes, the uplands by mountain coolness. Colors alternate, and so do the sounds: the waves, the gurgling waters of a stream, the squeaking reeds, the rustling leaves and so many other sounds accompany the visitor on every step.

Churches and monasteries of rare historical value, mansions and towers, caves, trails, mines, threshing floors and vineyards give these villages a great wealth of sights that is difficult to encounter on any other island.

Visit the many Naxos villages and get carried away by their charm and uniqueness.
