A few words about Naxos:
Naxos is the largest island (428 kmē ) in the Cyclades island group in the
Aegean Sea, which separates Greece and Turkey. The island was the centre of
archaic Cycladic culture, then part of classical Greek culture, and is part of
modern Greece. It is a popular tourist destination, with easily accessible
ruins. One set of ruins is what is left of a temple built on a rocky beach. Long
ago there was an earthquake sending most of the temple into the sea. Still
standing, however, are two columns with a single lintel across them. The remains
of the structure resting in the sea can be seen from the shore and explored by
Naxos has many very beautiful beaches, such as those at Agia Anna, Agios Prokopios, Alikos, Castraki, Mikri Vigla, Plaka, and Agios Georgios at Hora, the capital of the island, which has 9,000 inhabitants.
Naxos is famous as the most fertile island of the Cyclades. It has a good supply of water in a region where water is usually inadequate. Mount Zas (Zeus 1,004 metres) is the highest peak in the Aegean Sea, and tends to trap the clouds, permitting greater rainfall.
