    A lovely mountainous village
    We discovered Koronos by chance, while we were lost in the countryside of Naxos and were looking for our way back to Chora. It was a lovely village, it reminded me of the mountainous villages that we normally see in the Greek mainland. There you will see some old houses that should need reconstruction, narrow routes to climb up, lovely stairs and gardens with nice flowers. We took some pictures, had a Greek coffee at the traditional coffee shop in the square and got ready to leave. People were old and didn't know English but somehow, amazingly, they gave us the right directions to go to Chora!!
