Portara, Naxos (5/26)

The ancient Portara on the islands of Naxos is a spot you have to visit while in Greece. The Portara is the unfinished portion of a temple built to honor the Greek god Apollo. Lygdamis started the temple around 530 BC. Not only it is a historic site, but it is the best spot on the island to catch the stunning sunset that happens in the Greek islands. It also offers a wonderful view of the Naxos Old Town and the Venetian castle.
