The village has expanded around the two Towers, at the foot of the Fanaria mountainrange, which used to belong to Frank landowners (17th century). One of the largest villages of Naxos, Apeiranthos truly is one of the most picturesque traditional settlements in Greece, which has managed to maintain its distinct character until today.
It is recognised for its folklore architecture, its white marble streets and houses with arches, but also for its topical Apeiranthian dialect which preserves its ancient Greek and Byzantine elements.
It is worth visiting the museums found in the village (the archaeological museum, the folklore museum, the geological museum and the museum of natural history). Also worth a visit are the Women’s Textile Society and the churches which are an indication of the village’s economic prosperity and flourishing artistic culture during the Byzantine years. The church of Aghia Kyriaki is unique in the Balkan region for its famous abstract murals of birds with ribbons around their neck.
