Churches in Naxos

Another notable church in the Chora is that of St. Kyriaki,
which was a monastery during the period of Turkish rule and operated
as a secret school for the enslaved people of Naxos. On the central square
of the Kastro is the Catholic Cathedral, richly decorated in the baroque
style with a marble floor and some superb icons in which a mixture
of western and eastern influences is apparent.
