Naxos: Attractions and more...



The centre of the stronghold, with its characteristic violets, the small streets, the imposing Venetian fortress and the picturesque little port make Naxos one of the most beautiful cities of the whole island.

From the harbor one can distinguish the superb marble portal of Apollo’s temple, which was built in 522 a.C. but never ended since.
Following the Greek mythology the island became Ariadne’s home, she was abandoned by Theseus after the killing of Mynothaurus.

In Naxos there are numerous marble quarries which represent the island’s most important economic source.
The city is characterized by a typical Mediterranean climate with warm and dry summers and mild and rainy winters. In winter the temperature drops down until 2°C or 3°C while in the summer it reaches even 38°C to 40°C. The north eastern part of the region is influenced by the continental climate.
