Poseidon Temple
A beautiful trip through the Coasts of Greece. With a very kind guide who told the story of Greece and its mythology. Arriving at Cape Sunion and the Temple of Poseidon and observing that panorama, the sea and the mountains, the temple and its history was a fascinating experience.

There are better things to do
The place is nice, but the explanation in the way is poor and when you arrive itwas 15 minutes explanation and freetime to spend there and then, drive back.. so, it is ok, but too much time for too little seen and learned.

Relive the story
The normal excursion, the only inconvenience in English. The monument to visit was what I expected, but now I wanted to see the sunset, which was the highlight of the excursion.

Excursion Itinerary: Cape Sounio & Temple Of Poseidon Tour


Cape Sounion is located in the southernmost tip of the Attica peninsula. On the rock that dominates the Cape, Athenians used to worship the God of the seas, Poseidon and Athena, the patroness of Athens.

Due to its strategic location, Sounion was a natural observation point for seafaring vessels. According to legend, King Aegeus and his son Theseus agreed that, if Theseus killed the Minotaur, he would hoist white sails on his ship. However, Theseus, on his way back from Crete and overjoyed at his great feat, completely forgot about this. When Aegeus spotted the black sails in the open sea, believing that his son had perished, he fell to his death from the edge of the rock.

During the 65km drive to Cape Sounion, you will be thrilled by the natural beauty of the Athenian shoreline. On arrival at Cape Sounion and the Temple of Poseidon, our guide will bring to life the resplendent history and mythology of this area.

After the visit to the Temple of Poseidon, you will have some free time to take in the beauty of the Cape before returning to Athens with the best memories of all experienced and learned during this amazing trip.

Greca Tip: Do not miss experiencing that tranquility that will move your soul enjoying the stunning sunset near the majestic temple of Poseidon.
