According to mythology, Theseus abandoned his love Ariadne, after killing Minotaur in Crete. Popular place especially at sunset time. ”

Museum
“Take the time to spend an hour or two at the Archaeological Museum of Naxos (tel. +30 22850 22725) and go back thousands of centuries by viewing items and artifacts left behind from civilizations that lived on Naxos and nearby islands from as far back as the late Neolithic period to Early Christian times. The Archaeological museum itself, declared an historical monument, is part of the Naxos’s interesting and varied history. Housed in a building that is part of the Venetian Castle, or, as is known on the island as “inside the walls” of the Kastro district, the Archaeological museum is testament to the continued utilization of the castle. ”

Natural Feature
“There are two reasons to hike Mount Zas…to stand on the highest point in the Cyclades and to summit the mountain where Zeus was born and raised. According the Greek mythology, Mount Zas, also called Mount Zeus, is the place where Zeus spent his childhood. Tucked away on the slopes of the mountain is a small cave where Zeus was born. You can visit this cave as you hike to the summit.”

“All situated around quite a large cedarwood park, surrounding an abandoned, unfinished all-inclusive hotel site, which recently hosts street exhibition art by Wild Drawings and other street artists from several places around the globe. A very interesting combination, worth spending at least half a day.”
