Situated inside the Chora’s Castle (Kastro), near the Archaeological Museum, the Catholic Cathedral is an outstanding medieval monument that dates back in the 13th century.
Constructed during the Venetian rule, under the supervision of Markos Sanoudos, the original temple has been restored between 1500-1600 AD by the prominent Catholic families of Naxos, whose donations are preserved to this day. The temple exhibits particular historic and cultural interest, as it includes icons that combine western and eastern influences while a definite must-see is the prominent 11th century, a two-faceted icon of Virgin Mary and John the Baptist.
