This quaint village is built on the slopes of the mountainside and is just 6 km south of Chora (Naxos town) with a population of around 500 inhabitants. The main occupation of the locals is cattle-breeding and agriculture. Glinado is a picturesque village situated near Galanado and one of the most fertile areas in Naxos. It has been called the ‘balcony of Naxos’ as it has panoramic views across green countryside all the way to the Aegean sea. The village has limited accommodation options (so book well in advance).
At the entrance of the village is the church of Agios Nikodemos, patron saint of the village. Don’t miss other attractions such as the reservoir, the mill of Kargelas, the chapel of Tzanakos and the parish church of the village “Metamorphosis tou Sotiros” built around in 1680.
Close by, in the region of Iria, visitors can see the sanctuary of Dionysus, an ancient monument dedicated to the god of wine, who lived on Naxos.
There are many churches in Glinado, which is also close to the popular beaches of Agios Prokopios and Agia Anna.
