Aghios Arsenios, or Agersani as the locals call it, is a charming traditional village and one of the biggest villages on the island. It is located in the fertile valley of Livadi, eight kilometres south of Naxos town (Chora). This area is best known for the renowned Naxion potatoes grown here. Many of the locals are involved in cattle farming whose milk is used to produce the delicious Gruyère cheese made on the island.
Aghios Arsenios consists of two sections: the upper village is called Ano Aghios Arsenios, and the slightly lower lying village of Kato Aghios Arsenios. You will see many churches and chapels throughout the area.
Aghios Arsenios takes its name from the Holy One. The chapel is located just outside the village. A second church in the village worth noting is Aghios Nikolaos. In the monastery of Aghios Ioannis (John the Baptist) you can see incredible post-Byzantine icons.
Not far from Aghios Arsenios are two of the most popular beach resorts on Naxos – Agia Anna and Aghios Prokopios.
