The Temple of Poseidon

The Temple of Poseidon, located at the southernmost tip of Attica, Cape Sounion, is the destination that you must not miss. Its ideal location offers a breathtaking view of the Saronic Gulf and the Aegean Sea, while on a clear day you can also see up to six islands at a distance. The most significant feature of the area, though, is the Temple of Poseidon, which is perched atop a cliff at the edge of the Cape, at a height of 60 metres above the sea level. The Temple of Poseidon was built in the middle of the 5th century B.C. to honour Poseidon, the ancient Greek God of the sea.

You will be able to see the most vibrant coastal suburbs of Athens Glyfada, Voula and Vouliagmeni, along with their beaches which are enjoyed by thousands of people daily. Further down on our drive, we will come accross the picturesque seaside resorts of Lagonissi, Saronida and Palaia Fokaia. Afterwards we will arrive at Cape Sounion, where you can visit the Archeological Site, see the remains of the Temple of Poseidon and gaze at the unique view of the Aegean Sea.

Moreover, you can enjoy a refreshment or snack at the nearby cafe.
