Naxos Skado

Skado belongs to the emery villages, meaning that its residents have a “share” in the emery mines and work there. It is believed that it took its name after the word “iskas – ados” that means fig, because it had lots of fig trees, or after the word “skiero” (=shady) because of the shade of the trees. It has beautiful two-storey houses in accordance with the local architecture. At the end of the village you reach the church of Panagia (Virgin Mary), which according to tradition was built during the Turkish rule. Info Skado hosts the folklore collection of Marigo Pittara.
