  • The temple is located in a lovely surrounding. The area is not very large but still impressive. And please don't forget to visit the small museum! Its building received a design award
  • This ancient Greek temple / early Christian basilica is really interesting. It is located on top of a high hill, so it watches all over down the valley. Of the original temple only a few pieces are still up, most of them are on the ground nearby. A small part of the temple has been rebuilt in order to see how it would have looked like, but that's an hard work because of the Christian basilica built on it. There are a couple information points, but they are too damaged to be legible.
  • Nice spot to visit. Free entry. Closed on Mondays. Some steps to climb but not exhausting.
  • After seeing the Acropolis, this is pretty underwhelming. Nice drive to see the Naxos countryside away from the beaches.
  • A bit difficult to find at first but worth the effort if this is your interest. The landscape at this time of year is beautiful. Everything is in full boom and the fertile valley is what this temple was originally built to honor. This is a small site with nice examples of the architecture of that period. Sadly this site is neglected. The information placards are faded, some on the ground, and the museum nearby is permanently locked due to economic priorities. And has been so for quite a few years I was told by Britt expat. Go there with low expectations for now. But do go and admire the beautiful surroundings and the marvel of it all.
