The Central Archaeological Council approved on July 8 the restoration plan for Cheimarros Tower, one of the most important monuments of Naxos and a point of reference of the island along with gate Portara.

Cheimarros Tower, that was declared archaeological site in 2011, is located between the village of Filoti and the bay of Kalados. It is a circular marble tower of the 4th c. BC, measuring 9.20 m. in diameter and preserved to a height of 14 m., with an estimated original height of 17 m.

The tower is built with double walls, its two faces joined with bondstones extending through the full thickness of the wall.

The few openings, the single window and the arrow-slits highlight the defensive nature of the structure..
