Potamia Village in Naxos

Information About Potamia

Potamia Naxos: Located 9 kilometres from Naxos Town, the lovely village of Potamia is perched on a hillside and surrounded by wonderful green nature. With a population of 300 inhabitants, the main financial sources of the village today are agriculture and livestock. Potamia, whose name means riverside, actually consists of three villages: Ano Potamia (Upper Riverside), Mesi Potamia (Middle Riverside) and Kato Potamia (Down Riverside). The name derived from a wonderful river that crosses these three villages and makes a great place for hiking.

In the Medieval times, Potamia was very prosperous, as shown by the many Venetian towers and the 14 mills, whose ruins can be seen around till today. Very impressive is the 17th century Tower of Kokkos with a watermill in its basement. In Ano Potamia, next to a prehistoric water spring, there is the tavern Pighi, one of the best taverns on the island.
