  • Beautiful monument to the God Apollo, it represents the door of the temple of the god that has not been completed. It represents the reference point of Naxos (Nasso). The structure was built during the VI sec A.C. , but the whole temple hasn't been completed. The excavations has been used to build other structure over the centuries.
  • Used to be the gate for Apollon's temple which never completed because of an earthquake. Today is the symbol of Naxos island and the best place to enjoy the sunset at the port. It's almost always windy so a jacket would be nice to enjoy the whole experience! The myth says that Thiseas left Ariadni there because God Dionysos requested at Thisea's dream saying that Ariadni meant to be his wife. In result Thiseas was sad and forgot to change his black canvas which was a signal for his father Aegeus that his son was dead making him suicide falling at the sea, giving his name at Aegean sea.
  • A major must see attraction of Naxos. I would recommend that you get there half an hour or so before sundown to get a good position, as the sunset from Portara is one of the most beautiful in the world.
  • Best sunset in the world. Must visit.
  • a unique experience!! worth to try at sunset, don’t forget to bring with you a greek beer :)
