According to legacy, the temple was built in mid-4th century by either St. Helen or Constantine the Great, who redeemed his mother's vow. There has been a temple at the very same site, dating from well before the 4th century.

Ancient cemetery: Located on the beach at the Vinzi area and in use from the 8th century BC until the 2nd century AD. The Archaeological Museum: Particularly remarkable with finds from Paros and Despotiko in Antiparos, located near Ekatontapyliani. The Byzantine Museum: Located in the area of Ekatontapyliani, with icons, wood carvings and religious relics of rare craftsmanship from the times of Byzantine and Ottoman rule.

Venetian Castle:Located on the hill of the old town and built by the Venetian duke of Naxos, Sanudo (13th century), with architectural pieces integrated from three archaic temples and two classical era temples of the ancient city. Of these, only a small section of the archaic temple of Athena (6th century BC) survives on top of the hill. Part of an Early Cycladic settlement was unearthed next to the foundations of the temple.
