PORTARA****

Portara is the huge marble gate of a temple that begun construction in the 6th century, probably in honor of the god Apollo in the island of Naxos.


Address : Palatia isle, Naxos Town, Naxos

Portara is the huge marble gate of a temple that begun construction in the 6th century, probably in honor of the god Apollo in the island of Naxos. Stands majestic on the island "Palatia", or island of Bacchus as it is said differently, in the left side of the port of Naxos. According to mythology, this island Theseus abandoned Ariadne and then she was kidnapped by Dionysus with his retinue. The island was not associated with Naxos until 1919, when the stalk that connects it with the rest of the island was built.
