In central Naxos between 2 rivers, in a fertile valley is the picturesque village of Vourvouria.
According to one version, the name Vourvouria is derived from the word vourla -reeds that grow in abundance by the rivers. Another version suggests the village got its name from the sound of the waters that flow abundantly throughout the area.
Until 1950 Vourvouria village was attractive and prosperous, with more than 150 permanent residents, and produced significant quantities of olive oil. Today most houses are abandoned and there are no more than 25 permanent residents, but the village remains a beautiful settlement.
The alleys of the village are full of oranges, lilacs and olive trees, while many springs flow which end in the nearby river.
Take a walk through the narrow streets, light the candle in the Church of Agia Paraskevi, admire the tranquility and the sounds of nature.
