An impressive kouros statue, left on site because it was broken, maybe dyring its transport to its final destination. Serene and green location. Bit tough to find. Google maps did not help, had to ask locals. Further up the mountain another kouros statue, good exercise...More

I saw this as part of an island tour (the interior is incredible). This will take 30 minutes stay but it is very much worth the visit. The statue was made between 2500-3000 years ago. The area is lovely as well.

This statue is pretty cool. It has a lot of history behind it. However, it is very difficult to access if you don't go with a tour guide. The signs are all worn out and some aren't translated in English.

You walk in the garden and oh! there's a kouros! Amazing feel in under the pergola too, with a cold drink next to the fish tank. You also walk a bit further up and there's another kouros! Like a treasure hunt for gigantic kouroi!

The statue is far off the beaten path, although the drive there was very scenic. The statue never made it to its intended destination, probably because the lower part broke. It lies at or near where it was found in a field. The path on...More

We managed to get to see the Kouros Statue by travelling from Naxos town on a normal service bus of 1.80 euros each. We got off the bus at Myloi and walked along the road a little until we reached a sign about the Roman...More
