Just 3km from the town of Naxos (Hora) at the southwestern foot of Chrysostomos hill, is the amphitheatrically built village of Aggidia which overlooks the fertile Livadia valley below, the main town of Hora and the blue Aegean sea beyond.
The road between Hora and Aggidia road boasts many ancient and medieval monuments. These include the 14th century monastery of “to Fraro“, which played an important role in the life of the Venetians of Naxos; the ancient aqueduct of Lygdamis, a medieval water font, the ruins of the early Christian church of Agios Stefanos and low Venetian towers. There are, in fact, abundant indications that the area was a country resort for the nobility of the main town in ancient times.
A trademark of the village today is the white church of Agios Charalambos which overlooks the plain of Livadia and the endless blue of the Aegean.
Agriculture and viticulture are the main source of income for the inhabitants.
Do try their excellent locally produced wine.
