The Archaeological Site of Sounion or Cape Sounion is a raised piece of land located on the southern tip of the Attic peninsula in Lavreotiki. One of the most famous and important attractions at Sounion is the Temple of Poseidon, a remarkable example of the Golden Age of Athens and is a popular spot among tourists for its historical significance as a place of worship. The land also offers breathtaking views of the Aegean Sea and ancient Greek architecture.
Sounion was a strategic point via which the sea passage of the city was controlled during the 5th century BC, but once it gained religious importance, temples dedicated to Greek Gods were constructed. Another temple dedicated to Athena on the lower hill was demolished in the 1st century AD. When planning to visit Sounion, it is best to take an intercity coach or travel by car to reach this endpoint of the Athenian River while enjoying the breezy wind and panoramic scenery.
