Pictures from my visits to Naxos



bekristo on Tour

Naxos is a Greek island and the largest of the Cyclades. It was the centre of archaic Cycladic culture.

The largest town and capital of the island is Chora or Naxos City, with 6,533 inhabitants (2001 census). The main villages are Filoti, Apiranthos, Vivlos, Agios Arsenios, Koronos and Glinadoood
Greece 2013, 2014, 2015, 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2022

Pictures from Naxos og summer holidays in the Aegean Sea mostly have motives from sea, shore, old buildings, food and drinks.
We visit Naxos in september as a good autumn-holiday.

Here are some of my memories from a tour with good friends in 2019, where we also celebrated  two birthdays

 Agia Anna beach with a greek "Baywatch"

 When staying at Naxos we live at Agia Anna hotel, a short step from the beach and the water

This year we took a road-trip with 4 cars, lead by the youngsters, Lisbeth and Jorunn
(both 29+)

A pit stop in the mountain with all four cars and 16 people from Norway

We passed the mountain Zeus, 1003 meter above sea level. According to the Greek mythology, Mount Zas, also called Mount Zeus, is the place where Zeus spent his childhood.

We paused in Chalki village that used to be the capital of the island as well as its main administrative and trade centre. It is located in the centre of Naxos

Looked at the unfinised statue of Dionysus. North east by the town of  Apollonas .The “Kouros of Apollonas”, also called the “Colossus of Dionysus”, is a 10.7 meter tall unfinished statue of light grey Naxian marble, weighing approximately 80 tons.

It has never been raised up to its full height; for some unknown reason the giant was left to languish for eternity on the bare ground.

And then we moved down to the south-west of the island

and ended up at Alyko Beach and the wallpaintings at the abandoned hotel. More in 2018
