Naxos Island Things to Do: 113 reviews and 311 photos
The incredible Portara at Hora is a marble gate that was supposed to lead to the uncompleted temple of Apollo(probably around 530BC but the building stopped because of a war).
It is situated in a small island(Palation) that is connected with the town of Naxos. You can walk there (right next to the port) but watch out for the waves that will make you wet! lol Go late in the afternoon just before sunset for some nice photos. Portara is one of the most photographic places in Greece.
Have in mind that many others will go there with you the same time :)
