Apiranthos ( Naxos ) is the "marble village", as the locals call it, is located in the heart of the mountainous areas at the foot of Fanari Mountain. It is 25 km from the town and impressive with its medieval architecture and faith in tradition. The main feature is the dialect of the region and the inclination of people towards the arts. The women of the region make the most beautiful textiles. Also in this area we find remarkable Byzantine churches, while the village is home to both archaeological and folklore museums. Major attractions are the towers of the Venetian rulers Sommaripa, Kastri and Bardani and the very impressive Zevgoli tower dating from the 17th century and built on a rock near the entrance of the village. Apiranthos is a mountain village and as such does not have its own beach. However, it is within walking distance of Moutsouna and Psili Ammos Beaches.
