The temple lies on a hill in a fertile valley . There are reasonably well preserved marble remains of the temple . But above all is the location beautifull with great views on the valley and the mountains.

One very impressive temple in the middle of nowhere in Naxos, surrounded by sloaps full of green, looking like the teple mas ment to be for the goddess of fertility. Even in Summer is impressive, The surrounded area is maintained beautifully with stones and aleys that they drive you to a semi ruined temple in the top of a hill.

We had hired a car for the day, and the Demeter Temple was on our radar. Follow the signs/instructions, and you will be able to find without too much difficulty. Easy parking on the road below, with lots of spring flowers in bloom. Easy steps up to the Temple. Didnt expect the ruins to be quite this good. OK, its... More

Rating is always a matter of subjectivity, and maybe 5 stars is a lot to give to a site whose reconstruction was co-financed through European Union funds (1994-2000) and yet the explanatory signs and photographs have already faded from the sun...Nevertheless, for ancient (greek) ruins fans and nature fans and road adventure seekers, this is a treat...not far from Chora...

Okay, so this was a little off the grid, a little hard to find, we did get "kinda" lost (more than once) we almost decided NOT to keep going, but then we found it! It was so worth the drive and the map confusion in the car ; ) . You actually walk right up to the ruins, on your... More

The site was great once we got to it...it seemed like it took forever to find this one though after you got off the main road and went a few more miles, there it was! A bit further off the beaten path than we were hoping for.

The Temple of Demeter is definitely worth visiting - Naxos combines access and love of the ancient sites with beautiful countryside.

We were staying not too far from here at Faros Studios in Naxos,and this spot was recommened to us.......We rented a Fiat Panda ,and off we went........It is a rather long climb up a steep hill, and would be difficult perhaps in hotter weather but we were there in late May. Took me probably 15 minutes to reach the summit,... More

A partially restored temple from pre-acropolis days in the middle of the island surrounded by countryside. Quiet, peaceful and beautiful.
