Temple of Apollo

Lonely Planet review

From Naxos Town, a causeway leads to Palatia Islet and the unfinished Temple of Apollo (aka the Portara), Naxos' most famous landmark. Though there's not much to see other than two columns with a crowning lintel, people gather at sunset for views back to the whitewashed houses of Naxos Town scrambling up to the 13th-century kastro on the hilltop.
