Temple of Poseidon

seaside cycling, magnificent views

8 Hours Moderate 35 Km

The stupendous Temple of Poseidon in Cape Sounion sits on a promontory overlooking the Aegean Sea with 360 degree views. Built in 440 BC, the mighty temple has mesmerized many with its magnificence, including the British poet Lord Byron who carved his signature in one of the marble columns circa 1810.

Strategically situated, Cape Sounion enabled Athenians to control the sea passage to Piraeus port, as well as Lavrio whose silver mines were responsible for Athens’ superpower status which was emerging in the 5th century BC.

The Temple of Poseidon is a relatively small archaeology site. You could take one hour exploring every inch of its grounds. There’s a Temple of Athena across the road, but most folks just spend about 20-30 minutes admiring the panoramic view and the elegant marble columns.
