There is the imposing and sacred temple of Poseidon, the god of the sea according to mythology that has lasted for almost 2,500 years, its sacred Doric temple of the mid-5th century. B.C. , which has been ordering the Aegean for centuries now. We passed the walls surrounding the Sanctuary, then the Propyllos of the inner enclosure, having the courtyard on our right and then approaching the temple itself built here on the "edge of the Athenians" in honor of the god of the sea.Opposite to it is the temple of Athena Souniada which was build in honor of the patron of the Athenian state. It was a peculiar church whose architectural members were moved to the Athens Market for the worship of the Roman emperors. The enclosure of this temple is perhaps the oldest architectural remains associated with the Sanctuary of Frondis, the most capable captain of his day, the ruler of the ship Menelaus, when he returned from Troy. Here, at the site of Athena's mosque, he stopped to bury him, honoring him in this way. Today the archaeological site of Sounio is one of the most photographed sites in Greece, as the panoramic view captivates the visitor of all ages. The unique sunset will soothe you and you will surely fill your camera with photos.
