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

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • This is an excellent museum that everyone must visit!You are just making a trip to the modern history of Greece witch is quite interesting!!A must for history lover's

  • I loved that place! It's a great part of modern Greek history. Despite of it's importance as a building it is never crowded or busy for one to fully enjoy and appreciate it. Feel free to ask the staff for information as they are very pleasant to talk to. If show genuine interest they might treat you to a private tour around which is probably the best way to enjoy this place. You will also be able to pose as an MP or even PM in the old parliament hall and take as many pics as you want. So dress well xxx

  • Another beautiful neo-classical building in Athens with an amazing collection of the national modern Greek history covering from the 15th century onward.
