Naxos Keramoti

It is located in the centre of Naxos, built in rich vegetation. At the centre of the village there is the square and a little further there is the traditional café. The church of Keramoti is dedicated to Agios Ioannis Theologis and a folklore museum operates in the courtyard. Two important rivers flow in the north and south of Keramoti, one on mount Koronos and the other on Fanari. They are joined at the western end of the island, at Dipotamata, and continue to flow creating waterfalls. You may take a path to get there. In the past, the life in the village was closely related to the abundance of water as indicated by the two abandoned watermills, the washhouse and the bridge. It is famous for the wine and honey it produces.
