In the way Ayios Georgios - Ayios Prokopios - Ayia Anna, you have the possibility of moving from Chora coastally.
Starting from the seashore of Ayios Georgios we pass the dantelated beaches of Naxos. The road for Ayios Prokopios goes through an old port where the waters are always calm. Ayia Anna is the small gulf after Ayios Prokopios.
In Ayia Anna there is production of potato seed.
Starting from Chora and following the National road till Apolonas, before Granado we follow the branch of the road towards Glinado, Tripodes and Ayios Arsenios. In the meadow we will see the farmers to collect potato, the primary wealth-production of Naxos and the factory, which produces the gruyere of Naxos.
The beach of Plaka is the continuity of Ayia Anna and Ayios Prokopios' beaches. The fascinating beach with the thin sand reaches till Orkos, Parthenos, Vigla, Kastraki, Alikos and Pyrgaki. Vigla was an observation post in the era of raids. From here, they sent messages for the pirates' approach. In connection with it, there is the tower of Noskelos.
This way covers the biggest part of the inhabitable Naxos. From Chora and Agidia the road crosses Livadi.
From Livadohoria we go to Galanado. We meet the tower Belonia and Ayios Ioannis. It's a temple, the half catholic and the other half orthodox. Then we continue crossing the mountains Za, Fanari and Koronou's mountains.
Below you can see the Ano, Messi and Kato Potamia and the church of Ayios Mamas (9th century) patron saint of the shepherds. Then we meet Sagri with the Apaliros' castle and the monastery of Timios Stavros. Gradually, the landscape changes and we enter to the basin of Tragea.
Here is the centre of the island and for this, Tragea, was a commerce centre. Its villages: Damalas, Vourvaria, Damarionas, Koutsoherado, Tsikalario, Chalki, Akadimoi, Kaloxithos, Metohi and Monoistia. Its castle is situated higher and from there you can look far away to Filoti, Moni, Potamia, Sagri and the sea. The castle was used as observation post in antiquity and in recent years.
At the foot of Za, there is Filoti, which has a great development the latest years. Going up we meet Fanari. Here we must stand still because there is a wonderful panorama to enjoy. You can see almost the entire island, Paros and Syros.
The village Apiranthos has taken its name from someone unknown man of letters and it gives the village an archaic looking. There is also the possibility of coming from the name Perathos. The village was called also "marble village" because of the use of marble, which was used for the constructions of houses. Here there are the towers Zevgolis and Bardanis and the Archeological museum. There are finds from the 3rd millennium B.C.
North to Apiranthos we arrive at Koronos stopping a little in Stavros of Keramoti. At the mountain's side are built Skado, Messi and Komiaki. After a little, we meet the bay of Apolonas. We return to Chora from the same road.
Following the central road from Chora we go Galanado and we reach at Sagri. Here we meet the monastery of Ayios Eleftherios. The area was characterized as a "small Mystras".
Here, they found out an important building dedicated to the goddess Dimitra (6th century B.C.). Dimitra's temple in Gyroula it is a unique - for the ionic architecture - monument, similar to the temple of Afea in Aegina.
