Glinado, Naxos Island

The small village of Glinado, located upon a rocky hill, is found some 6 kilometers far from the town of Naxos (Chora) at the southeast. It counts some 500 permanent residents, occupied in agriculture and stockbreeding, which are the most developed activities in the whole area.

The village offers only a few alternatives for accommodation, but if you choose to come here for staying or just for a visit, you will enjoy the nice view of the cultivated plain below the village. At the site of Yria, you may see the sanctuary of Dionysos, a ritual center that had been established in the early Mycenaean era and continued to exist until the first centuries of the Christian times. It is also worth seeing the old medieval towers scattered around and visit the small cheese dairy of the Union of Agricultural Co-operative of Naxos , which is found close to Aghios Arsenios.

Swimming is possible at the organized beaches around Chora, as well as at Aghia Anna and Aghios Procopios.

In case of emergence, you should return to the town of Naxos, some 6 kilometers northwestern to Glinado.

Access to the village is possible by public buses, by taxi and, of course, by rented or private car and motorbikes.
