Temple of Poseidon

Only 20 km from our guest house south towards Cape Sounion, you will find the impressive Temple of Poseidon.

           Built in 444 BC – at the same time as the Parthenon – it is constructed of local marble and it's still gleaming white when viewed from afar. Best time to visit is early in the morning, to avoid the big crowd and maybe make a day of it visiting the local fish taverns and beautiful beaches,  or just before sunset. You will be well rewarded with the stunning views.

HOURS: 8am-sunset in summer, from 9.30 am in winter.
