Bazeos Tower 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 castle was built in this peculiar location as an attempt to provide safety to its residents from the frequent pirate attacks that used to take place. Originally, Bazeos Tower functioned as the monastery of Timios Stavros but was gradually abandoned during the 19th century. Later on, it came to the ownership of 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.
