Naxos Town (Hora)

Naxos Town, the capital and port of the Island, is a fine and lovely Cycladic town, with twisting narrow streets, alleys and passages originally intended to confuse invading marauders.
Back in Time

Despite the lack of a natural port, the city flourished since the Cycladic and Mycenaean period. Apart from the temple of Apollo on the islet of "Palatia" (the Palaces), with the "Portara", on the northern side, extensive traces of the archaic and Mycenaean city have been found.

Built on a low hill next to the sea, the Castle of Naxos Town clearly distinguishes the dense medieval structure of the settlement with the Castle above.

The current form of the Castle and the other fortified neighborhoods was gradually shaped from 1211 onwards, with the occupation of the city by the Venetians under Marco Sanoudos and the creation of the Duchy of the Aegean with Naxos as its capital.


The medieval parts of Chora are an archetypal example of the defensive architecture of the Aegean. The outer houses, with fewer openings and reinforced construction, form the wall. This organization is clearly visible in the Castle which had two gates (today there is a third entrance), perimeter organization with a central tower, where the small square with the Catholic church, the Catholic episcopal palace, the Ursuline school, the Casatza Chapel and the Archaeological Museum of Naxos.

The "Bourgos" on the north side below the Castle has a similar organization with three entrance gates, the "Porta Gialos" towards the coast, the "Fontana" to the north with the large well of drinking water, the "Profiti Elias" to the south next to the so named church and later a fourth gate in Agios Ioannis at the port, the "Porta Marina".
