Point of Interest
“Portara, was once the entrance to temple of Apollo of 530 BC. This tall marble gate is the island’s emblem and main landmark. To reach Portara follow the path to the islet of Palatia. To witness a breathtaking sunset from Portara make sure to get there at least half an hour before the sun sets in order to secure a spot as it tends to get quite crowded. Come back again the next day during the sunrise hours to witness a stunning sunrise at Portara with no tourists in sight!”
