A really nice ancient temple of the Goddess Dimitra in the middle of fantastic green fields, with trees and animals. Nature and art in a fantastic combination

The temple of Demeter is a reconstruction, somewhat like a miniature Acropolis. You have to walk a bit from where you park, so bring comfortable shoes. If you are traveling to Halki (which I recommend due to the picturesque back streets and lovely Taverna's with outdoor seating). You can easily walk the site in under 30 minutes and an additional...

We were on our way to the other side of island and stopped here. The drive to it is pleasant among farm fields. It is a one lane road, so you need to stop often to let others by. The temple itself is reconstructed. I was disappointed in the displays, once again. They explain how and when it was reconstructed,... More

The temple is a fair detour off the main road, but persist with it, because while I suspect that a fair amount of guesswork & imagination has gone into the partial reconstruction, you do, in its remote setting, get a sense of place. The site is prettily arranged with plenty of information. Beware that it is a fairish walk from... More

In Sangri under the hill of Profiti Ellias, you will find the beautiful temple of Demeter which is called after Demeter, the grain goddess. Only recently (ten years back), the temple was restored by German archaeologists to its present state. Said temple is one of the few known temples with a square floor plan.

Location is a bit off, but it's very nice when you get here. We came from the back side, wish made us miss the magnificent entrance.

Me and my boyfriend went there by car. I think there are also bus tours available, so I warmly recommend you to visit it. The remnants of the temple, preserved (it was rebuilt from ruins after they have discovered that most of the parts are still there), were a very nice sight. Path that leads to the temple is dreamy...

Even though the temple stands in open wheat fields we found it difficult to find as the signposting on the main road and through the village is poor. However we persevered and were rewarded with a private visit (we were the only ones there) in the late afternoon sun, which beautifully highlighted the temple. There's not much information at the...

Ever since I learned of Greek mythology, I longed to travel to Greece. It was truly amazing to stand in front of a temple dedicated to the goddess of agriculture and harvest. The marble stones are beautiful as well, shining brightly under the sun. The walk up to the temple was also beautiful, as I am amazed by the views... More

Renting a car on Naxos is a good idea. The interior is beautiful. This temple was isolated, but that was part of its charm. Free to explore and get wonderful photos. Could have provided more historical info.
