Tripodes (Vivlos), Naxos Island

The small traditional village of Tripodes, or Byblos, is situated within an overgrown area, some 8 kilometers far from the town of Naxos (Chora) at the Southeast. The settlement still preserves its traditional local color, which makes it very scenic: whitewashed small houses, narrow streets and, above all several ruined windmills, the characteristic feature of the village, situated high on the hill. The 800 permanent residents are mainly occupied in agriculture and in tourism. The village is famous for the high quality wine and the tasty potatoes produced in the area; these latter are highly prized in Athens where they are exported.

Accommodation facilities are available in the village and if you choose to stay here, you will enjoy an excellent landscape and a quiet atmosphere, a good alternative to those wishing to avoid the crowded and noisy resorts of the coast. Close to the village you will see the Holy Monastery of Panaghia Tripodiotissa, dedicated to the Assumption of Virgin Mary, with nice old icons; you may also visit the old church of Stavropeghe. On the way to Plaka you may see the ruins of the old Venetian tower. Finally, you should not miss to visit the old windmills, high on the hill, where you will also take lovely photos of the whole area.
