Overview of Portara

This is the alternative name of the archaic (6th century BC) temple of Apollo, located on islet Palatia that dominates the island’s entrance. It’s the island’s number one trademark, a work which was never completed. According to the myth, Naxos was the home of Dionysos, god of wine and pleasure, who built this temple for his beloved Ariadne.
