Temple of Sangri

The remains of the ancient Temple of Sangri, a sanctuary most likely dedicated to Demeter, reportedly date back to as early as the 6th century BC. Little remains of the temple's former glory days, but some pillars and walls do stand as reminder of the island's historic heritage. This is one of the attractions best seen as a part of a guided tour.

Do & See

Whether it is beach relaxation, active pursuits, ancient ruins, or even museums that you're looking for — Naxos has it all. Sites of particular interest include the gate-shaped Portara, Venetian Kastro, the beautiful hiking trails inland (towards the village of Halki, containing the historic Vallindras citrus distillery), and the island's sparse (yet present) archaeological sites.
