Seaside Delights in Fokea
Next, our journey leads us to the quaint village of Fokea, where the sea whispers tales of ancient sailors. Here, we treat our taste buds to a delightful Mediterranean feast at a local seaside tavern. Savor the flavors of Greece while gazing out at the azure horizon.
The Majesty of the Temple of Poseidon
After lunch, we unveil the crowning jewel of our adventure: the magnificent Temple of Poseidon in Sounion. Perched atop a hill, this ancient marvel, constructed in 444 BC under the visionary Pericles, pays homage to the Greek god of the sea, Poseidon. The temple's 16 Doric columns stand as silent witnesses to millennia of history. In the early 1800s, the romantic poet Lord Byron immortalized his name on one of these ancient pillars.
