History
The famous "Portara", the emblem of Naxos, overlooks the port's entrance on the Palatia islet. Built on such a site which stares at the sacred island of Delos, it first impresses the visitor with its large size which is 3.5 m long and 6 m high. It constitutes the entrance of an incomplete ancient temple of Apollo that had begun construction on this site, in 530 BC by Naxos's tyrant Lygdamis.
