It's interesting in that the stone would be roughly shaped into the desired form before shipment - this reduced weight. There are a couple large statues that broke before they left the quarry and were left behind. Not exactly off the beaten path - ours...More

You do not need a car as the bus drops you at sign post to Kouros. It's a lovely walk in shaded areas with views of countryside and old marble quarries. The statues are in peaceful settings and are quite breath taking . There are...More

The Kouroi at Flerio can be reached pretty easily if you have your own transport - might be a bit more difficult otherwise as the site lies pretty much in the middle of nowhere. Turn south directly off the main road by the signpost until...More

One of the top sights in Naxos. Ancient monuments in a beautiful location full of green and with a nice view to the sea.
