Temple Of Poseidon - Review

Cape Sounio, which is a little more than an hour away from Athens, holds many treasures. The foremost of them is undoubtedly the lovely temple of Poseidon. The God of water has been honored very aptly at sea.

Sitting on the sea-face, the decently preserved monument is a lovely ode to Poseidon. The mighty columns look gorgeous against the backdrop of the blue sea. The positioning of the temple itself is quite dramatic and makes it worth the visit.

Besides the temple of Poseidon there are a couple of other Greek marvels along the way so do make it a point to see them as well. Not far from the city, this temple makes for a wonderful and refreshing day trip.

Temple Of Poseidon, Athens Reviews

  • Great experience.... not a must see but you will enjoy everything inside its great to see all the guns and swords inside probably one of the best weapons I have see preserved thru out the years...

  • A great museum that specialises displaying artifacts relating to the founding of the Greek nation when it gained independence from the ottomans. It also used to be a Parliament house so you can see the old parliamentary seating as well.

  • Free on Sundays, which is great. An indepth museum based on Greece's history as a nation oppressed by the ottomans for a long period of time and their journey to independence. At the time there was also an exhibition about the world wars, so takes you right through time up until the world wars. A great way to learn about Greece.

  • excellent small museum about greek movement for independence,especially in 19th century.beside this an impressive current exhibition about first world war with unique items and a very pleasant neutral flashlight about ww1,its roots,development and aftermatch.impressed....and a big thanks to the staff which shows enthusiasm and interest in its work,which is already absent in some more "rich" countries of EU!!

  • Details the political history of Greece. Nothing from the ancient Greek civilization, only some artifacts and weapons from old wars. Go on Sundays to get free entrance.
