Naxos. Cyclades. Greece. View the towering gleaming marble Gateway of the unfinished 6th BC Temple of Apollo on Naxos island. The gateway’s roots, like those of Naxos lay deep in mythology; Locals believe it to be portal of the palace of Ariadne, the lover of legendary hero Thesues who abandoned her here after she helped him escape the Minotaur of Crete. Legend has it that she then took solace in the arms of Dionysus, Greek god of the vine and protector of Naxos.
