Naxos Vourvouria

It is located at the centre of the island. It is not mentioned on maps, though visitors of the mountainous and central Naxos will certainly pass by this settlement. Because of the uniform architecture of the houses it is said that the entire village has been built by a single craftsman. It is characterized by the stone houses with the “pountia” (big balconies), “volta” (arches) and courtyards. The churches of Vourvouria are Agios Prokopios (1809-1810), Agios Georgios (1762), Agia Paraskevi (1397) and Agios Konstantinos (1311).
