Additional Location Information
In a country that the Sea is worshiped as a mother and as a mistress, it was only logical that a Temple should be dedicated to Poseidon, ruler of the Sea, friend and foe of every mariner.
Timeless, the temple had watched thousands of sunsets along with its visitors… whispering ancient stories.
But Cape Sounio is also a symbol of a father’s grief and despair when losing a Son to a War… as Aegeas, when he thought he would never see Theseas face again.
Visitors of Lavrio, are in for a time travel of more than 3.000 years Before Christ. This historic retreat carries the very beginning of industrial mining. The first theatre in Greece, Thorikos and the Temple of Demetra.
It was due to the mineral wealth of Lavrio’s land that allowed Athens became the naval power of Greece and thrive during the Golden Age.
Lavrio’s ability to fuse the ancient Greek realm with the contemporary Mediterranean hospitality is what makes it so fulfilling if experienced. One moment you are walking between mining areas in a national forest or an ancient theatre like a contemporary professor Jones and the other you are enjoying some grilled octopus accompanied with Ouzo.
Strategically positioned at, just 25km from the airport, 50km from Athens and 5 min. drive from the Villas, Lavrio and its multi dimensional wealth, will grant the visitor many beautiful moments.
The area of Sounio along with the temple of Poseidon is a mystic doorway into mythical parables, ancient glory and natural beauty, all merged in a typical Mediterranean dramatic scenery.
