  • My wife saw the Kouros of Apollonas when we went around in the North of Naxos. It is not easy to park your car. The statue is reached via a path with some steps in the midst of the stones. The Kouros is quite impressive for the size. We like.

  • This Kouros is something really breathtaking! There are only a few signs to get there, but if you're curious look for them on the road near Apollonas. This colossal unfinished statue represents the Greek god Dyonisium. If you're in Apollonas take some time to visit it, it's worth it!
  • Impressive 10 metre long statue carved from adjacent quarry and then abandoned. Very short walk from the main road.
  • Quick stop but the actual statue is impressive.
  • Well worth stopping if you are passing by , but I wouldn't make it an event in itself
  • If you can go there by hiking the route is awesome😉
