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.

Our wonderful hotel (Faros Apartments) prepared a schedule of places to visit around Naxos and the Temple was one of the first on their list. We arrived mid-morning early in May and enjoyed a wander round the temple and grounds. The island was quiet and there were just a few other visitors which added to the peace and atmosphere of...

More by accident than design, I took the footpath from Ano Sagri rather than driving right up to the Temple. It was a magical experience, walking through an unspoilt valley filled with olive groves, losing my way a couple of times, and beginning to think the temple didn't really exist, and then I walked around an olive tree and there...

I loved the area around the temple. It is definitely worth a visit. It is, however, advisable to read about the temple in advance. It is a nice walk up to the temple.

The location of this temple is easy driving distance from Hora, and it is a nice place to visit, and I would say that if you are in Naxos and you are driving around it should be on your "must" visit list. The location is beautiful and fertile, and I can understand why the ancient people felt that this was... More
