This is just right outside the village of Sangri and should be reached by your own tranport. The good part about visiting at this time, you don't see any single soul at all. Well... read more

This is a potentially interesting site, but some of the signs are so faded they are indecipherable. The museum, toilets, and information were all closed. Worth a look, but don't expect too much.

A bit off of the beaten track. Average ruins site for Greece. Signs were difficult to read and there really wasn't a lot to see. Save your time and go to the beach instead.

This is just right outside the village of Sangri and should be reached by your own tranport. The good part about visiting at this time, you don't see any single soul at all. Well this temple was built in the 6th BC an you can see quite a fair bit of marble left. There is seemingly a drainage system around... More

In the middle of the most rich fields of Naxos you will find this phenomenal site of what used to be the temple of the Goddess of agriculture, fertility, and the harvest. Getting there is easy and you can park right on the road. With a few steps up, you will find yourself surrounded by history and marvelous marble columns... More

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.
