Apeiranthos

Overview

Apeiranthos is a beautiful mountain village of Naxos, seemingly untouched by time, still bearing as it does the marks of the Venetian era. It looks like a fortress, perched at the foot of Fanari mountain nearly 26 kilometers from Naxos Town.

Venetian towers, pretty, old two-storey houses, marble paved alleys with arches above them, picturesque squares and the poetic disposition of Apiranthians combine to create a rare atmosphere in the Cycladic islands.

The Church of Panagia Aperathitissa, built in the 18th century, has an imposing presence in the main street. Apiranthos has a number of very interesting museums.

The Archaeological Museum mainly hosts finds of the Proto-Cycladic period, the Geological Museumfeatures some rare and unique items among its approximately 2,000 exhibits, the Natural History Museumincludes a collection of the area’s fauna, flora and a small aquarium, while the Folklore Museum displays traditional fabrics, embroidery and tools. Also, not be missed is the small Aegean Children’s Art Museum, which deals with children’s relationship with toys and more, from antiquity to modern times.
