Cape Sounio

Sounio - what a lovely name, sounds romantic too. The place is famous for its sunsets .People gather at the temple on top of it to watch the sun go down in changing colors of yellow, red, and orange. It also offers , on a clear day, a panoramic view of surrounding islands in the Aegaen Sea such as the nearby greek islets of Makronisi and Patroklou

Cape Sounio is the name of the majestic spot
Really worth stopping at it for a camera shot
Up the hill and below it, there are things to see
Such as temple of Poseidon, the God of Sea

Under the marble temple a small harbour
And the Aegaen Sea with its blue crystal water
It is southernmost point of Europe mainland
One can see from above some aegaen islands

Climbing up the hill

Temple of Poseidon, the God of Sea in mythology

Boats on the sea

Bellow the hill, the Sea and a restaurant
