ERA JAM WORKSHOP
The jam-making shop Era, located at the heart of Halki where Yannis Mandenakis creates delicious jams and spoon sweets with the skills of a true craftsman.
MORE THAN A SHOP
Era is more than a shop. A richly coloured facade leads to a traditional Halki interior of dark wood panelling with a state of the art jam-making room. Authenticity, style and, above all, great tastes are the hallmarks of this classic Naxian institution.
HALKI lies at the center of Naxos and is only 20 minutes by road from Chora, the main town and harbour of the island. The village lies at the heart of Tragea, the triangle, which is also known by the ancient Greek name Drimalias, the forest of olive trees. The olive trees of Tragea originated hundreds of years ago in Venetian Naxos. They are deeply symbolic, not only of the Mediterranean Sea but also of the island heritage of Naxos.
