Travelling to Naxos

Tsikalario-Apano Kastro-Potamia

In Tsikalario starts a pathway leading to Apano Kastro, a place located on a hill with amazing view. It seems that from antiquity up to the medieval times it was inhabited. The route continues down the west side of Apano Kastro and after passing through fields it ends up in Potamia.


Melanes village is ideal for a pleasant relaxing walk. The village is located in an area in Naxos and is full of springs, brooks and old watermills. It is a very interesting trip as it combines rich natural beauty with cultural developments. The village is close to the castle-like cottage of the Venetian potentate Markos Sanoudos, as well as close to the castles of Mavrogenis, Fragkopoulos and atheling De Marrie.
