Paxi Gaios Village
Gaios Village Paxi: Gaios is the capital town of Paxi, named after the Apostle Gaios, who played an important role on the island when he preached during the first years after the death of the Christ. Gaios is surrounded by a stunning landscape with lush green olive groves and it counts on 500 residents that constitute the majority of the population of the entire island. Today most of them are engaged in tourism and fishing.
Gaios lies around the natural harbour where most cultural and trade activities on the island take place. The village displays some of the most picturesque 19th century buildings that can be seen from the port between the narrow alleys. The village retains its strong traditional character despite the cosmopolitan crowds that constantly arrive on the island with private yachts and boats. Paxi has always been a popular destination among the Italian and the English.
