The small settlement of Agios Thaleleios is 5 km from the town of Naxos at the foot of the hill of Agios Fokas, and is one of the 4 settlements of the municipal district of Melanes.
It is a small, picturesque village with a few permanent residents. Their main occupation is agriculture and the visitor can admire the beautiful valley with orchards that stretch endlessly in front of the village.
The village took its name from the miracle-maker Saint, who healed the faithful without taking money. It celebrates on May 20, the day of a great festival (panagiri) which takes place in the courtyard of the church dedicated to his grace. Visitors are welcome.
A main attraction of the village is an ancient aqueduct that used to bring water from the spring of Flerio to Hora at the time of tyrant Lygdamis. Parts of it survive, but it has not been restored.
