Naxos Tripodes Village
Tripodes Naxos: The small traditional village of Tripodes is situated 8 kilometres from the capital and has whitewashed houses, narrow paved streets and beautiful ruins of windmills. The way to find this village is to look out for the three old windmills on a hill. The place is actually signposted Vivlos. The three windmills have seen better days but you can see an example of a fully intact one in the distance. The whitewashed houses here are very pretty.

The imposing walls of an old Venetian tower can still be seen nearby the road leading from Tripodes to Plaka. On the top of the village of Tripodes, there is a church with large, red windowed towers.
