Description

Fasolas is an old neighbourhood of Filoti village the settlement of Rachidi. The Fasolas area, before the construction of the Provincial Road from Chora (Naxos town) to Apiranthos, was the commercial and artisan centre of the village, where minute professional venues operated, like grocery stores, fabric and household linen shops, a bakery shop, a tailor shop, a shoemaker’s shop, a smith shop, olive oil mills, “kafeneio” (cafeterias), etc.


The “neighbourhood of the professionals” of Fasolas, gives an excellent picture of how the economy of an island village was organised and operated in the 19th century and the first half of the 20th, but also of the human-scale dimensions that characterized the places of work, as well as the dwellings.


When the provincial road was constructed, almost all the shops moved to the “Amaxotos” (rural Greek for car road). It is very fortunate that most of the old shops remained almost intact, and today they are restored, creating a superb space that refers directly to the 19th century. The Fasolas area took its name from the homonymous neighbourhood of the village Kampos on Chios island, from where a young refugee named Antonis Pagidas came to Filoti, Naxos.
