Kokkos Tower

Kokkos Tower

Lierado on Naxos, one of Potamia’s neighborhoods, features the impressive Kokkos Tower, built by the same-name Greek Orthodox family in the 17th century.

The remains of a watermill are seen in the basement, while the lintels bear interesting inscriptions.

Tradition has it that the Kokkos tower, which once belonged to the Barozzi family, was the scene of a love story similar to that of Romeo and Juliet, involving two young members of the respective families.

Kokkos tower lay in a half-ruined state for a long time and has been recently restored by its present owner.
