  • From Naxos the collective can be taken year Sagri and walk from there to the temple (it is indicated). A beautiful walk, where you can see the rural beauty of the island, with shepherds guiding their flocks and spectacular views. The distance you can see Temple, which makes the most interesting hike. There aren't many people and you can enjoy being close to a temple of great historical value, surrounded by a beautiful landscape.

  • 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.
  • Nice views on the mountain. Temple by itself is nothing more than few stones
