Sounion, Poseidon temple at the sunset - my rest point !

Sounion is the southest cape of Attica with the temple of Neptune at the top of the hill. Sunsets and sunrises over there are considered between the best of the world, because of the variety of colours. When the weather is good, you can see many islands of the Aegean sea from Kea to Milos.

MYTHOLOGY: From the rock of Sounion suicided the king of Athens Aegeas, seeing in the sea returning from Crete the ship of his son Thisseas with a black flag, because Thisseas had forgotten to put the white flag, as he had agreed with his father, if he killed Minotaurus. In the memory of Aegeas, the all sea was named Aegean sea.
