the most admired attraction in the city. The reason is simple the place has a chunk of history, art and culture to it, adhering to its old legacy and mystique. The place is actually a ruin of Apollo’s temple, the god of sun & light, that casts a dramatic frame of ancient collonaded against the blue of the sky.
The symbol of the island of Naxos. It is an impressive main gate with large pillars of stone. It is a short climb around up and you can walk around. It is popular with sunset seekers but it can get very busy, so get there earlier for a good spot.
