Tower of Bazeos

Tower of Bazeos

In a distance of 12 km from Naxos Town, stands the imposing and distant Bazeos Tower, a monument of great historical value and importance for the island.

From an architectural point of view, it belongs to the Venetian towers that dominate in abundance throughout the island. The tower was built in 1600 BC and originally functioned as a monastery of the Holy Cross, until the early 19th century. After 1830, it came into possession of the newly established Greek state. In the late 19th century, the Greek government sold the tower to the Bazeos family which preserves the heritage until today.

The tower was used as a summer residence of the family for many years. In the year 2000, the last owner of the Tower, a descendant of the Bazeos family, after realizing the architectural and historical value of the tower, he restored it and now it is used as a place for cultural activities.
he period from July to September is the peak of the artistic activities with concerts and theatrical performances of the Naxos Festival, which is hosted in the courtyard of the Tower.
