Prefecture of the Cyclades Things to Do: 23 reviews and 96 photos
The Kastro at Naxos is larger and better preserved than the one at Paros. You can get into it from a few different places, but perhaps the best way into it is from the north, as the North Gate is one of the major features of the Kastro.
Just within this gate is the museum of Della-Rocca-Barozzi, a traditional Kastro mansion house, still in private ownership but open to the public (Euro 5.00 admission). It was an interesting and informative tour, and you get some good views out over the city from within the mansion too.
Much of the architecture within the Kastro is fascinating, with archways, tunnels, stairways and tiny doors everywhere! The Kastro also contains a convent and a Catholic cathedral. It's a lovely area to wander around, and oh so quiet.
Directions: Just behind the waterfront at Naxos town - you can't really miss it.
