The Church of Our Lady of One Hundred Gates is one of the oldest monuments of Byzantine ecclesiastical architecture in Greece. Forty years ago, a major renovation revealed the existence of a 4th century church at this site, namely, two centuries before the Justinian epoch. Throughout the centuries, the temple suffered extensive damages, resulting in the distortion of its imposing style. In 1959, Professor Orlandos started the restoration of the temple in the Justinian style, a diligently work completed in 1966.
Naoussa is one of the most beautiful fishing villages in Greece, and retains both its authentic island character and cosmopolitan glamor.Residents of Naoussa are lively people who revel in a good party, dance and song. The wine and fish festival is held every summer, on the first Sunday in July. The Koursariki (pirate) night on 23 August is an important celebration with a representation of pirates looting the village and features fireworks and a large feast with plenty of wine and seafood delicacies for everyone.
