    Serene atmosphere
    This is a nice church in a very peaceful location. You will probably run on Panagia Drossiani on the way from Koronos to Halki, a few metres off the main road. We rented a car for a couple of days in Naxos and we toured the island. The church was old and some walls were half ruined, but the atmosphere inside was very serene. At the yard, an old lady was selling honey and local herbs. A spot far away from the crowded beaches of Plaka and Agios Prokopios. The inland of Naxos is so beautiful and different from the other Cyclades.
