This is the emblem of Naxos Island and can take amazing pictures in sunset time. The name itself means “big door” and this is a doozie! It basically consists of two posts and a lintel of massive proportions and unthinkable mass! What the real questions should be are “How it got there?” and “What did it take to get it all standing!!??”

The structure is seen on the approach to the harbour of Naxos and is worth visiting for a photo shoot. It is a shame that people may no longer climb the structure for a good photo, but it is after all several thousand years old and deserves respect.
