Naxos Agersani

It consists of Apano chorio, Kato chorio and Pera chorio. It is worth visiting Agios Spyridonas, Agios Nikolaos (18th century), a church which was also used as a watchtower at the times of pirate raids and the monastery of Timios Prodromos with the chapel of Agios Vasileios. You may also visit the small tower of Agios Nikolaos with the dovecote and the two windmills on the hill of Stroumpoulas. At Elliniko, south of the settlement, there lie the ruins of an ancient fortress and at Petradia, the traces of an ancient temple. In the past, the residents of the village were occupied with the salt marshes, but today large part of these areas has been reclaimed for the construction of Naxos airport.
