  • Above the village of Apollo, at the entrance of the ancient marble quarries, for centuries remains lying the giant, archaic (6th century BC), unfinished "Kouros" of Apollo. With a height of about 10 meters, majestic, despite tooth journey and his neglect by us, the modern Greek, constitutes irrefutable witness to the immense value of art and culture of ancient Greece. Although prevailed the characterization of as Kouros, is not intended, of course, none of their characteristics and divided experts, with others to support the view that depicts Apollo and other Dionysus, after both were worshipped in ancient Naxos. Of course, barely noticeable neglect, if not abandonment, of space, without the existence of a basic least quote information for the monument. Thousands of people from around the world visit every year and literally catch us naked and unprepared, if not indifferent. How difficult and costly it would be to put up a sign with some related information?! Is wonder ...

  • After a bumpy ride, a turn you see suddenly tagged Kouros. There is no space for parking, the statue is unattended, but the greatness of the block.

  • The statue of Kouros is located on the coastal road just before reaching the junction for Apollonas. Is a monolith statue depicting Dionysus, beautiful, high ten metres, and lies in the ground. Unfortunately it is located at a point a little awkward: Park by car is difficult along the way ... then once parked there is to do an uphill path to thirty meters. However, in addition to the statue, from there you can enjoy a beautiful view of Apollonas and its Bay.
