When you look at Naxos Town from far you can see the grey walls of what seems a little castle: the real name of the family was "De la roche" made "Della Rocca" from Italians. They were a noble and important family who joined the Crusades too. Inside you can find a typical XV century house with old scenes of life, old toys and objects as somebody had taken a photograph at least one century ago. Everything is frozen in time and it is funny to imagine what looked like the breathtaking view on the Portara 100 years ago!
