Naxos Island, Greece
The largest island in the Cyclades island group in the Aegean. It was the centre of archaic Cycladic culture. 
According to legend, it was on Naxos that Theseus abandoned Ariadne after she helped him find his way out of Crete. Ariadne was soon in the arms of Dionysus, the god of wine, and it was their marriage that blessed the island with its fertility and wine.

Naxos is one of the few cycladic islands, which has been inhabited continuously since the beginning of civilization. There are many archeological remains and there is evidence showing the presence of permanent settlements as early as the 4th century BC. There is an archeological museum in the old town, which contains Hellenistic, Roman and early cycladic terracotta figurines.
The giant brothers Otus and Ephialtes figure in at least two Naxos myths: in one, Artemis bought the abandonment of a siege they laid against the gods, by offering to live on Naxos as Otus’s lover; in another, the brothers had actually settled Naxos.

Even after all this time, the sun never says to earth, “You owe me”.
Look what happens with a love like that. It lights the whole sky.
