Naxos

Welcome to Naxos


The sky was so blue, and the sun so bright, that an eternal summer seemed to reign over this island.

Naxos is the biggest and greenest island of Cyclades in Greece. Chora, the capital of Naxos, combines a unique blend of Cycladic and Medieval architecture. According to mythology, this was the wedding island of god Dionysus, god of wine. That’s why there is a sanctuary dedicated to Dionysus in Naxos inland.
