Overview

The visitor that enter in Schiso Castle on the headland of ancient Naxos, may admire a fortification that was built to preside over the bay of Naxos and in 1800s it was extended into a fine, noble building . Who accesses it still can read between the stones of its ancient walls throughout history, rulers and battles that have left indelible mark in time.

This building, located by the promenade is quite interesting, although in a serious need of restauration (which is apparently underway). When back in its full glory it could be something really special.
