Naxos Town or Hora, the island's port and capital,
is a typical Cycladic town with a maze of narrow streets and tiny passages.
It is a lively town and makes a very good resort. Behind the waterfront an extensive, almost Medieval Old Quarter stretches up the hillside where
Castle (Kastro) is.
Walking inside and around Castle is a must while the views will take your breath.
The old town up on the hill is divided into two neighbourhoods, Bourgos where the the Greeks lived and Castle, residence of the Venetian-Catholic nobility.
