This cathedral is on a large property and is a great place to wonder around and see the architecture and grounds just a couple blocks from the beach.

I lost my dad 3 years ago and am always drawn to the little greek cathedrals - this one in particular - its so peaceful and calm inside and you can feel the spirit wash over you - a very very special little cathedral for me personally

Take the time to see this beautiful Church. The rich history of the Eastern Orthodox Church is second to non.

Cathedral is not open and the outside is totally uninspiring. Absolutely nothing to see or do. Not sure it's even listed

Stumbled upon Metropolis Square while looking for the Ancient Naxos ruins of the 2nd & 1st BC and the commanding structure is the Orthodox Cathedral which was built in 1787 AD. The Cathedral is an impressive sight but is not the only feature in the Square, several other Churches & Cloisters plus the underground ruins make for a fascinating visit... More

A beautiful church close to the town center with panoramic view on Naxos harbor, quite a few steps to get there from the port

I read many reviews praising this church but I found it quite disappointing. There was no information nor leaflets in English and the lady looking after the church wouldn't even make eye contact and seemed quite unapproachable, unlike the very helpful and knowledgeable gentleman at the Catholic Cathedral which I found much more interesting and beautiful. Lots of icons, fancy... More

I enjoyed the breathtaking ecclesiastical decor, well worth the visit. Unfortunately, only opened limited hours.

This is the hub of the Greek Orthodox community in the town and if you have time, it is worth just watching family life as people come and go during the Sunday service. But to really enjoy the Cathedral arrive early in the morning. As you might expect, there are plenty of impressive icons but also reliquary and jewelled gifts... More
