Sangri Naxos

Sangri Naxos

A village in a fertile region 11 kilometers (7 miles) to the southeast of Naxos town. It actually comprises three hamlets, Ano Sangri, Kato Sangri and Kanakari. The landscape here is dotted with picturesque windmills, Venetian defensive towers and charming little Byzantine churches. Agios Nikolaos (10th - 13th century) boasts some beautiful wall frescoes, while Kaloritissas (10th - 13th century) is built inside a small cave on the side of the Profitis Ilias mountain.

To the south of Ano Sangri, there is now a metalled road which leads to the ruins of a Temple of Demeter.
