Naxos

The largest island in the Cyclades, Naxos, is located a good 30 kilometers south of Mykonos in the Aegean Sea. It is separated from its western neighbor island Paros only by a strait about six kilometers wide. In the east, the shores are very steep, while towards the west the land turns into a large plain. From north-northeast to south-southwest runs a mountain ridge with Mount Zas (also Zeus or Oxia) roughly in the center. These are imposingly steep granite cliffs. The gorges are mostly strikingly green and the villages shine in bright white in the sunlight. You should also look for the ancient ruins on this island.

Naxos is inhabited by about 18,000 people. Many of them live in the port town of Naxos in the flat west of the island. Here the ferries arrive or depart and you can see the bustle of the fishing boats, but also the pleasure craft. Naxos is the seat or rather the diocese of the Greek Orthodox bishop of Naxos-Paros.
