Naxos Agios Thalelaios

The small village is located at the foot of the hill of Agios Fokas and faces a valley with orchards. It took its name after Agios Thalelaios the miracle-maker celebrated on May 20. The monastery of Agios Thalelaios along with Fotodotis and Agia are considered the oldest ones on the island. In the settlement there is an ancient aqueduct that used to bring water from the spring of Flerio to Chora at the time of tyrant Lygdamis and it has not been restored.
