Cape Sounion, Greece

Cape Sounion

Cape Sounion is the most southern point of Attika, approximetely 43 miles outside of Athens heading southeast. Because of the location jutting out to the Aegean there are often high winds sweeping the coast. This is also the archeological site of a Doric columned temple from the 5th century B.C. (Lord Byron's signature is carved into one of the columns) along with other ruins of fortress walls and the remains of an ancient shipyard. This location looking out at the waters is considered one of the best in the Mediterranean for observing sunsets.
