Relatively easy to find, watch for the signs, this site is perched on a hill with a great view. Parking is below with a good walkway up the hill. There is limited signposting.

Finding the paved route to this antiquity was not as easy as we thought. We missed the signed turn off through the town of Ano Sangri and then tried to get back which led us down an alley which was blocked by a parked vehicle. Due to the narrowness backing uphill to a driveway that allowed us to make the... More

A long drive along little roads from the nearest village - don't hink that it's easy to get off the bus at the road end where you see the sign & walk. Ruins of temple of various dates. The interpretative signs were in English, but if you didn't know the direction of the compass points they were difficult to follow.... More

This was one of the stops on a guided bus tour. Visitors to Naxos should make it a priority to see as much of the island as possible. Standing in this historic spot, absorbing the information and taking in the "as far as you can see" views was worth the climb.

The drive to the Temple of Demeter was beautiful. This is set out in the fields of Naxos and the grounds are lovely. There is a small museum on the property that really gave fantastic information on how temples/statues are put back together with small bits and pieces that are excavated. It was definitely worth my time.

We visited the Temple as part of our one-day tour of Naxos Island. Impressive structure on top of a hill with great views. A well-constructed stone path leads to the Temple at the top of the hill. There is a museum on the way to the Temple, but, unfortunately, it was closed the day we visited.

One of the top priorities when visiting Naxos!! Easily accessible by car not far from chora, perfectly organized. A stunning view when approaching the temple, nice walk up the hill. The temple is nicely presented and accompanied by a modern small muceum that got international aword. In addition no entrance fees!

Very impressive to see and a well maintained site despite the free entry. There is a lovely museum on the site as well which is a must see containing artifacts from the area.

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.
