Engares - Naxos (Greece)

Engares (Egares). Engares is a small village on the Greek island of Naxos. It is situated in the middle of a wetland area with many gardens, orange trees and other fruit trees. The village is located nine kilometers (5 mi) west of Naxos town and is considered one of the richest villages in Naxos. A footpath originates in Engares and leads to the village of Keramoti. It’s an enjoyable route for people who love walking.

In the center of the village is a square paved with stone. Here is the church of the Holy Mother. In the village there are many mansions. One of these houses brags that it counts among its guests the famous Greek writer Nikos Kazantzakis (author of Zorba the Greek).

Near the village are all kinds of historic sites, such as Aplomata, the place where Mycenaean tombs have been discovered. Not far from Engares lies Galini, with its fortress and several monasteries.
