Even NASA posted a photo on its website, which depicts the sunset from Portara and describes it as one of the most beautiful in the world. History: Portara is the huge marble gate of the temple that was built in the 6th century BC. about the worship of the god Apollo. The church was started by the tyrant Lydgamis, but after the fall of his tyranny, it was not continued, so it remained unfinished. Lygdamis had the ambition to build a temple like the Temple of Olympian Zeus in Athens, but he failed. During the Venetian occupation, the Venetians used much of the unfinished temple to build the Castle, and the only thing left to this day is the giant gate. Mythology: In Greek mythology there are many stories about the Palace Island, where Portara is today. According to the best-known myth, on this island Ariadne was abandoned by Theseus and was immediately abducted by Dionysus.”

Place of Worship
“Temple of Demeter In the village of Sagri, in the area of ​​Gyroula, you will find one of the most remarkable buildings of ancient Naxos, the Temple of Demeter. It is dated to 530-520 BC. and is Ionic. It dominates on a fertile plain overlooking both the sea and the mountain of Za. The sanctuary of Demeter along with the temple of Yiria are considered architecturally the precursors of the Parthenon. The temple is made of white marble in a square shape, with columns on its facade. The columns that were in his specially designed interior space supported his roof. As the inscriptions found in the temple testify, the place was dedicated to the worship of the goddess Dimitra and Koris. The establishment of the sanctuary at this point is not accidental. The goddess Dimitra was according to the ancient Greeks the goddess of vegetation and fertility, so it is expected that the sanctuary would be built in an area suitable for agricultural exploitation. In addition, as a center of worship, the church was a cohesive factor for the inhabitants of the wider area.”
