Churches · History Museums · Castles
Apeiranthos or Aperathos is a mountainous village in the island of Naxos . It is located 28km north-east of the capital of the island, built on the foothill of mountain Fanari, on an altitude between 550 and 650 m. The similarities of the local dialect and traditions to the mountainous Crete villages has led some historians to the conclusion that Apeiranthos was built by Cretans during the 10th century. The first historical evidence regarding the existence of the village goes back to 1420, on a reference by the Italian traveler Cristoforo Buondelmonti on his book Liber insularum archipelagi .The village has four museums: the Archaeological Museum of Apeiranthos, the Museum of Folk Art, the Geological Museum, and the Museum of Natural History. With a population of 722, the village is one of the biggest in the island.Notable peopleManolis Glezos (1922), politician and writerPetros Protopapadakis (1854–1922), Prime Minister of GreeceMichalis Vardanis (1936–2014), Army officerNatural History Museum
