Cape Sounion Tour
Most people ask the question if the Cape Sounion tour is worth going and the simple answer is “yes “, apart from being a part of Athens. Cape Sounion is among top travel destinations because it houses the temple of Poseidon, one of Athens most valuable historical monuments from the ancient Greek era.
The temple of Poseidon is perched almost 200 ft above the sea at Sounion and built in 444 BC. Coinciding with the time the Parthenon was also built. The promontory is approximately 70km from Athens, the country capital, making Sounion an outskirt of the town and a perfect location for the temple.
The temple of Poseidon is surrounded on three sides by the sea,making it a unique monument and illustrating the appearance of an abandoned building on an island.
Except that the land where it is situated is more kosher. The design of the temple is hexagonal with six columns but only a few columns from the original piece still stand today.
The place where the temple is in Sounion looks deserted as it looks like the only concrete structure in the area. Surrounding is littered with grasses to give the appearance of abandoned artifacts.
