Location: Town

Situated inside the Chora's Castle (Kastro), near the Archaeological Museum, the Catholic Cathedral in Naxos is an outstanding medieval monument that dates back to the 13th century.

Constructed during Venetian rule under the supervision of Duke Marco Sanudo, the original temple was restored between 1500-1600 AD by the prominent Catholic families of Naxos.

The temple exhibits particular historical and cultural interest, as it contains icons that combine western and eastern influences. The double-sided icon depicting the Virgin Mary and John the Baptist is a must-see. There are no frescoes on the walls, but the altar is mesmerizing.
