Temple of Apollo, Naxos, Greece

The remains of an unfinished temple built in 530 BC, this massive marble gateway stands on an islet opposite Naxos town. The portal's four marble parts weigh about 20 tons each, according to the island's official web site. Accessible via a wave-washed walkway, the islet is a favourite spot to take in the sunset. It also offers sweeping views of the island itself.
