Keramoti, is a small mountain village of 76 inhabitants. It is right at the centre of the island, deep in the canyons formed between the mountains of Koronos, Atraliki and Vouno (approx. 25km away from the main town). It is well linked with the villages of Apeirantho, Korono, Kynidaro and Moni via the biggest transportation route of mainland Naxos. There is a small church in this area, the position of which is unique, since from this spot, one has the ability to see part of the eastern but also the western coast of Naxos.
The running spring waters, which maintain their flow levels even during the summer months, have created a scenic green surrounding for the village which is very different from the usual Cycladic landscape. Moreover, the village is built in such a way that it does not allow the entrance of vehicles in its narrow alleys, hence, maintains its traditional character. It is worth taking a tour in these picturesque alleys, taking a break under the shade of the sycamore trees at the old bridge of the south river, visiting the water mill and the old olive mill at the main square (also known as “platsa”) and ending your tour with a drink of raki at the traditional coffee house. Lastly, do not miss out on a visit to the folklore museum which can be found at the courtyard of the village’s church of Aghios Ioannis Theologos.
