At our destination the Temple of Poseidon stands gazing upon the open sea. The foundation of the temple, that was mostly made of marble were set in the fifth century but it took longer to complete as the temple suffered a lot. Even though there are only the remains, the visitors are still impressed by its beauty and glory that the nature around it contributes to make it more impressive.
Sounion was very important for many generations as shown by the findings, with the oldest being from 600 b. C. If your timetable allows make sure that you won’t miss the impressive sunset. On our way back to the city we will stop so that you will enjoy your meal at a restaurant with view at the sea. Cape Sounion is a treasure of history and natural beauty, all only an hour away from the city! Let us make this short trip a trip to remember!
