Melanes – Kourounochori – Myloi (circular)
Discover the area of Melanes, named after its lush plant life sprouting from the river – the real gold of Naxos!
- Enjoy a relaxing walk at the riverside of Melanes
- Discover the old watermills
- Taste local treats at the settlement of Myloi
Embark on a tour along running streams, shady trees and forgotten watermills to see how water, this valuable resource, has been shaping the island life, its customs and its economy since antiquity. Behind the scenes, not far from the busy commercial town of Naxos, crystalline streams in hidden nature spots have been contributing to the livelihood of the island, centuries before tourism became its main economic driver. Stop by a traditional café under the shade of a centuries-old plane tree to appreciate the local color and take in nature’s beauty.
