In the Cape of Sounio stands the temple of Poseidon, the ancient Greek god of the sea, where the horizon meets the Aegean Sea. The view across the Aegean Sea is magnificent offering the traveler one of the most breathtaking sunsets. Built in 444BC same year as the Parthenon of marble from nearby Agrilesa.
There are stories about the ship of King Menelaus who stopped briefly at Sounio on his way back from Troy, or about the unfortunate King Aegeus who drowned himself on that spot believing that his son Theseus had been killed – the Aegean Sea was named after him.
