Naxos with the long history and the admirable mythological past is the largest of the Cyclades island group. It is graded as one of the ten most beautiful islands in the world and fourth in Europe. In Naxos or Axia, accoding to the Greek mythology, Dionysos (god of wine and revelry), who was born from the god Zeus, resided there and Demeter (goddess of agriculture) also lived there. The inhabitants honour their gods by establishing places of worship such as Yria sanctuary and Temple of Demeter at Sagri. The famous Portara (Apollo temple’s entrance) with the magnificent sunset, that dominates the harbor, was a temple dedicated to Apollo (god of light and music). On the island of Naxos natural beauties as fertile plains, marble mountains, endless beaches and small ports alternate harmoniously.
