Halki on Naxos

Cosy Halki (or Chalki), once the capital of Naxos, is located almost in the centre of the island about 15 kilometres east of Naxos Town.

The road to Halki twists through the beautiful valley of Tragea where it is said to grow more than 40,000 olive trees. Along the way you will pass three small villages, beautifully set in the verdant valley that in the spring is glittering of broom. The villages are in due order: Kato (lower) Potami, Mesa (middle) Potami and Pano (upper) Potami. The area is really beautiful with all old knotty olive trees. The landscape is perfect for short hikes.

 

Taverna in Halki. Naxos.

Just at the beginning of Halki is a three-way intersection where you can park, from there you walk via a narrow alley into the village. An inviting taverna is the first thing you see, to the right of the taverna lies a few shops, including an "olive-focused" shop where you can buy most of what has to do with olives: oil, soaps, books etc.

The many shabby Neoclassical houses testify about Halki's glory days, just as the village's main attraction, Gratsia Tower, does.

Halki's main attraction is Vallindras Kitron Distillery. A visit to the shop and distillery are a must when you are on Naxos.

Close to Halki is the two lovely villages of Filoti and Apiranthos.
