It is approximately 30 minutes drive from the port of Naxos, seemingly in the middle of nowhere, but on the way you enjoy some scenic views of Naxos. The site it self could be worth much more if the authorities maintain it and develop it...More

It’s a nice drive to this temple. If you are into history then it’s a must. If not at least you get to see a bit of the island during the drive and some great views once there. Then it’s just another short drive to...More

Fairly small but interesting temple, reconstructed in parts to give an idea of what it would have looked like originally. Free entry and a lovely rural setting, worth the diversion to visit if you have a hire car.

Totally worth a visit. We felt like time has stopped right there and were just amazed by its history. Bring a bottle of water with you, a little path up there is quite hot.

We visited the site today [June 24, 2018] for the second time since our 1st visit seven years ago [and we have been coming back to Naxos every year since!]. The site has been improved, the archeological restoration has progressed and the scale of the...More
