Sunset at Apollo Temple's - Naxos, Greece

Naxos is a Greek island and the largest of the Cyclades. It is the complete opposite of Mykonos, the party island with its calm sandy beaches and laid back lifestyle. What you see here is the Portara, or the Great Door, a massive marble doorway to the ruined Apollo Temple built in 530 B.C.
