Koronida in Naxos

If you drive south from Apollonas (on the northern Naxos) you will pass several villages, some are well worth a visit. About 5 kilometres from Apollonas, the road turns right towards the village of Koronida (or Komiaki, the former name of the village).

Koronida, or Komiaki as the village also is called.

 

 

The road to Koronida twists through a beautiful valley that in spring is full of broom shining bright yellow, and you will for sure pick up the camera. Traffic is minimal, usually one is alone on the road.

Just before you arrive at Koronida, there is a small beautiful chapel garnished with broom on the left side. And the camera comes up again. When you reach the village you are met by a cemetery with two churches, one of them is one of the oldest on Naxos.


Koronida is a sleepy and genuine village where the tourists is met by curiosity. Villagers stops and looks to ponder over why you have taken the hardship to drive all the way there. The village is situated in a verdant valley and the houses are climbing up a hillside.

Stop here for a while and give the winding alleys and worn steps a chance. There is a serenity that is unique. Take a seat at a kafenión and enjoy the extraordinary everyday life in a traditional Greek mountain village.
