Naxos' Old Town

Naxos' Old Town, also known as Chora, is one of the key attractions of the island, being also its capital. There the visitor can enjoy the unique beauty, found only in the Aegean Islands. The narrow alleys lead to the numerous churches located within the Old Town, the shops, the coffee shops, restaurants and finally the castle, located at the top of the city. 

The castle, built by the Venetians, still remains one of the biggest live parts of the history of the Chora, being a sample of medieval architecture. The Old Town hides countless secrets of the old Naxos. Within it one can find the Old Market, which together with the old style houses, the little shops and the small tavernas, the beauty and friendliness of the old town and its people is easily evident.
