Prantounas Tower

Prantounas Tower

This is an imposing mansion on Naxos island, a short distance outside the village, which can be seen from afar.

The lintel above the gate, dated 1787, bears the name of its first owner, Andronikos Prantounas.

It later came under the ownership of a former mayor of Naxos, Panos Foufopoulos –by whose name it is also referred to. Next to the tower is one of the seven watermills in the area, which operated until the 1950’s.
