Location: Sangri

Bazeos Tower in Sangri is one of the most prominent sights in Naxos, located on the main road that connects the Chora with the mountainous villages of Halki and Filoti. Dating back to the 17th century, the tower was built in this particular location to provide safety to its residents from frequent pirate attacks.

Originally, Bazeos Tower served as the monastery of Timios Stavros (True Cross) but was gradually abandoned during the 19th century.
Later on, it came to the ownership of the Bazeos family, which kept the tower as their summer residence until the last descendant decided to restore the tower into a space suitable for hosting cultural events.

Every summer since 2001, the renowned Naxos Festival at Bazeos Tower takes place, hosting contemporary works of art as well as happenings of cultural interest.
