The stunning temple (it is rumored that Parthenon is based on its pattern) and the extraordinary museum are in absolute harmony with the natural setting around. Definitely one of the most imposing sites in Naxos.

The Temple of goddess Demetra dating back to 530 BC in the Sagri area was recently found and restored. Since the temple was later used as a Christian church, while restoring it, archaeologists decided to preserve both architectures to give the idea of the different shapes the building assumed since it was first built. It is located on the top... More

The Temple of Demeter is located near Ano Sagri, a relatively short trip from Naxos town. We rented an ATV to visit the Temple, however a rental car would have made for a more enjoyable journey. The pathway leading up to the Temple is lined with fragrant flowering bushes. I personally enjoyed the lizards who came out to sun themselves... More

This wonderful small Temple is situated near the village of Sangri in the middle of the island, in a rural region among fields and woods, and standing proudly at the top of a lower hill overlooking its surroundings. The site can be easily reached by the road, the parking is by the roadside, as is the ticket office. Tickets can... More

I was breathtaken by this. White, upright, standing starkly among the mountains and rugged landscape all around, it is not to be missed. Of course I enjoyed this particularly because it was mine to survey -- there are few visitors in October -- so I could marvel in silence. A few white pillars denoting so much faith, so much energy,... More

this temple is a ways in the country side but worth seeing. Much better preserved than the Temple of Dionysos on top of a hill. There is also an old little chapel right next to it.

If you don't have a guide with you or do this as part of a tour, or unless you have a guide book with you, you won't get much out of visiting this because there is no signage on the site. There is spaces for signage to be placed but no actual information on the spaces for the information. We... More

on our tourist map it was listed as the number one attraction - really?! No information was available up there about it so was difficult to appreciate the historic value. Really long drive for very little - we got more out of seeing the reptiles that we came across than the actual temple.

I got the local bus to Ano Sagri. From there are signs pointing you in the right direction and the estimated time of 35 minutes proved spot on. The path was quite stoney and undulating but not hard. You get a first glimpse of the Temple from about half way:quite dramatic. After my solitary trek, I arrived to find myself... More

Not much remains of the ancient temple, and even what is left today has been evidently restored a good deal to give at least some impression of its original appearance. That said, the scenery is absolutely beautiful. The temple lies on a lone hill surrounded by mountains in the distance. Not much to do here but sit down for a... More
