In Chora there is the impressive monument, “emblem” of our island, Portara (meaning Huge Door) as the locals have always called it because of the huge size and shape of it. Portara is located on the side of the port on the small island of Vakxos which is today called “Palatia”. This monument used to be the giant gate of the temple of Apollo which was built on the 6th century B.C.. According to mythology, Theseas abandoned Ariadne on the “Palatia” where Dionysos and his escort found her and kidnapped her. This is where “Dionysia” was feasted for the first time according to tradition.

You definitely don’t want to lose the sunset from this spot which is magical and a unique experience.
