At a distance of about 27 km from the main town Chora in Naxos, the traditional village of Apiranthos is built among two total green valleys.  

Apiranthos is one of the most beautiful villages of Naxos and one of the few traditional cities of Cyclades at the same time. The stone worked by the best craftsmen adorns the paved roads and squares and it constitutes the basic material of construction for the Apiranthos house.

Among the sightseeings in Apiranthos, there is the Venetian castle with its imposing site, the marble belfry of the church of Virgin Mary and the all round view from and towards the village with the windmills at the tops of the opposite hills.
