Believed by archaeologists to be the grand entrance of the Temple of Apollo, the Portara was initiated between 530-524 B.C. by Lygdamis, the tyrant of Naxos.

The temple was mysteriously dismantled before its completion and was never rebuilt. The monument site bears the distinct traces of the temple’s foundations, fragmented marbles, and the base of the surrounding colonnade.
