Travel Guides and trips for Panagia Myrtidiotissa, Naxos

About Naxos

Greece is blessed with 6000 islands scattered in the Aegean and the Ionian Sea. The Cyclades consist of 220 of the 227 inhabited islands. The lesser known island of Naxos is the largest of the Cyclades with a glittering waterfront, desolate beaches, mountain villages with ancient steep cobbled alleys, historic ruins and a fascinating history of Olives.Apollo Temple (Portara)Did you know that the popular ‘Swag se karenge sabka swagat’ song from a Salman Khan movie which also starred Katrina Kaif was shot in the Apollo Temple here? Overlooking the Aegean sea, only a single 2500 year old massive structure remains – a doorway to nowhere. Construction started around 530 BC and was abandoned by 506 BC when the ruler was overthrown. Since the temple was never finished, the subsequent rulers started using the marbles for building other structures in the island. The doorway however was so huge that it could not be transported or used.
