This is a wonderful site, positioned in mountainous landscape in central Naxos. High on a plateau, amongst olive groves and farm land, you can understand why the ancient Greeks and those who came before them chose this site. Walking around the reconstructed facade and ruins,...More

Demeter's Grotto will stretch the imagination. There is quite a substantial amount still surviving and unlike some sites it is possible to picture what the grotto would have been like. Well worth a visit

In the middle of agricultural fields stand the ruins of another temple built from marble. apparently Naxos exports 360,000 tonne per annum so there is no shortage of the stuff. The path is done with stone slabs with gaps so don't wear heels like some...More

Very nice laid out ancient site in Naxos...not far from downtown Hora. There is also a museum, but we didn't hit that. Path to site and sitting area were both top-notch. Some of the best signage explaining the site and it's history of any spot...More

Naxos is a great island with interesting things to see and explore that tell you about the history. We were pleased we visited the temple for the history and the stunning views. Worth the trip.

Although one of the lesser know monuments of the island, is a must see for every visitor. Having undergone a great restoration, remains an iconic example of archaic architecture. It's worth the ride!
