It is one of the smallest but very picturesque villages of Naxos at a distance of 38km far from the port. It is also one of the emery villages that once enjoyed great prosperity. Today the very few residents deal with agriculture and livestock farming.
The village has luxuriant vegetation and it constitutes a summer oasis for every passer-by. The beautiful scenery is completed by small houses; some of them are two-storeyed typical examples of the Cycladic architecture, as well as by paved narrow streets that will lead you to the oil press, today used as a museum, and to the remarkable folk collection of Mrs. Pitarra that is worth a visit.
