Photographer's Note

The ancient Greek choose an islet at side of Naxos as a special place to build a huge templo to Apolo in 530 BC. The ruler who decided to create the temple was defeated and the temple was abandoned. During Venetian times the stones of the walls were used to build the castle, but the gate was so heavy to be used and was left there.
You can see the castle in the background and the port too.
.......................

Os antigos gregos decidiram criar um templo grandioso para Apolo numa ilhota junto a Naxos, isso em 530 AC. Quando o tirano que havia tocado as obras foi derrubado, o templo acabou sendo abandonado. Quando os venezianos invadiram a ilha usaram os blocos de pedra das paredes para fazer o castelo, mas no puderam usar as pedras do portal. pois eram grandes demais.
Podem ver aqui o castelo ao fundo e o porto tambm.
