Travel with us along the coast, to the southernmost tip of the peninsula ofAttica, Cape Sounion. A getaway that is very close to Athens and it isfamous for its beaches, fish restaurants and the striking ruins of theTemple of Poseidon. Set high on the promontory, the temple forms part ofa triangle of ancient sites, including the Acropolis and the Temple ofAphaea on Aegina. They are all equal distances from eachother as thecrow flies, and on a clear day maybe you will be able to see the othertwo monuments. Sounio is also where Aegeus tragically fell from thecliffs when he saw the black sails that his son Theseus had forgotten tochange and thought that he was dead. The Aegean sea was thus namedafter him. It is a beautiful place to watch the sunset, the white marblecolumns framed by the sky and the lovely blue sea!
