Family hiking Naxos

Hike by the riverside of Potamia

An easy circular hike by the riverside along the three settlements of Potamia. The trail starts from the picturesque traditional village of Upper Potamia and goes on by the river, under the shade of the trees.

Among this fertile area, filled with orchards, olive groves and gardens, we observe the modern way of Naxian village life. We visit the old catholic church of Theoskepasti (today known as Ag. Mamas) and the nearby Episkopi – the old summer residence of the catholic archbishop.
