Naxos was one of the few catholic islands in Cyclades. So it is very interesting to go there at about 17 and ask for the guided visit. A little old lady who just speaks Freanch and Greek, grown up in the orphanage by the nuns will explain everything about this italian governor from a noble family of Venice who built his house and the castle. She doesn't speak english, so.... take a little dictionary with you! She will also show you the orphanage and the friars' monastery and you can clearly see in which terrible conditions people and chilfdren had to live at those poor times!!!

Address: Naxos Town
Directions: By the Catholic Church
