Built at an altitude of 500-600 m., between two slopes, Koronos is one of the most impressive mountain villages of Naxos. Cobblestone streets, arches, typical island houses with whitewashed steps and picturesque neighborhoods are what a visitor meets when he arrives in the traditional village, along with a few taverns, cafes, the church of Agia Marina and a folklore museum.
Koronos is also known to Greeks because of its mines and the Naxian emery which is still mined, in fewer amounts however than in the past.
Koronos is built at an altitude of between 500 and 600 meters, in the valley formed between the slope of bulk Koronos mountain west, where the sunward Koronos lies and on the slope of the lower eastern foothils called Ammomaxi on the east. These two sections are joined by a small bridge at an altitude of 540 meters, next to which is the central square of the village.
