The Temple of Poseidon, Sounio - A background of endless blue
Friday, 03 March 2017
The sunset at the Temple of Poseidon in Sounio is breathtaking. Build on a rock 73 meters over the sea, the Doric Temple attracts countless visitors for around the globe. According to Greek mythology, Theseus began his journey to Crete in order to kill the Minotaur from Sounio. His sails were black when he left but he promised his father that if he came home alive his ships would have white sails. Even though he returned to Athens victorious, he was caught up in the excitement and forgot to change the sails. His father, Aegeus, saw the black sails from Sounio and thought his son had been killed. He fell to his death from the cliffs. The sea then was named the Aegean in honor of the fallen king.
