Cape Sounion

Half-day | Daily | 14:30-19:00 • Duration approx.: 3 hrs

The Sanctuary of Sounion, with the astonishing temple of Poseidon, is one of the most important sanctuaries in Attica. The sanctuary of Sounion is first mentioned in the Odyssey, as the place where Menelaus stopped during his return from Troy to bury his helmsman. Apart from its historical importance, Sounion offers one of the most breathtaking views in the Attica region. Late in the afternoon, Sounion is painted by the wonderful colours of the sunset and the landscape of ancient ruins perched above the sea is simply majestic.
