All that's left of a temple to Apollo, Portara forms a dramatic frame of ancient colonnades against the sky and has become an icon of the town. Located on the island of Palatia, the attraction represents the remains of the cultural and trade center of ancient Naxos. The rest of the temple was used to construct a castle in the city center by the Venetians. Plan your Portara visit and explore what else you can see and do in Naxos using our Naxos visit planner .

  • A great place to visit any time of the day. But the best time is on sunrise when everything turn to red and the view is great. Enjoy the Greek sun and sea at theirs greatest moment.  more »
