A fortification built to help protect and house the citizens of Naxos, Kastro now hosts museums, galleries, churches, and shops, as well as a number of residential homes. Wander through the four-story Venetian construction to discover a wide range of historical attractions and activities, or simply relax and take in the superb views. History buffs should tour the on-site museum to learn more about Venetian rule of the island. Stores offering elaborate textiles and pottery works are ideal for souvenir shopping. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Naxos holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Kastro and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • We lived very close and we made several times the day and night tour by borrowing each time different lanes

  • It is from places in Naxos that you have to visit more than once!! The beautiful alleys, the magical view and the wandering in the streets of the castle of Naxos are the ones that make it special and perhaps unique!! Definitely recommend and we will go again when we meet in Naxos!!
