I hadn't seen the Portata at the harbor entrance - which some say was a temple to Apollo since it faces the sacred island of Delos. Others say no, it was to Dionysus who rescued Ariadne after Theseus left her abandoned on Naxos. It was built in about 530 BC - but was later mostly destroyed by ...

We ended up walking away from the touristy area and finding a pharmacy that sold them for ...
... name suggests , it had a view across to the active volcano on the island of Fira. Apparently it last erupted in the late 1860's And is expected to again, scientists are apparently unable to say when though. On day two we went on the catamaran cruise the Bloods got me for my birthday. It was very beautiful.
