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.

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

A very impressing monument.You feel that your paths follow the ancient Naxians paths and that you are in unique ancient temple, similar to Parthenon.

Recommend renting an ATV for their discovery of the place and beautiful landscape along the way. Read the story and let you impress.

We visited this temple after spending the day at Mikri Vigla's gorgeous beach. The temple is easily via a stone path which is not very steep. The temple is interesting although the information placard was worn and illegible which was a shame.
