At the peak of Cape Sounion lies this impressive temple, leading up towards it on three sides are trails of ancient archaeological roads and evidence of existence from so long ago and free to look at and roam around at your leisure. The final side is a sudden drop towards an ocean that spans towards endless horizon. The perfect place for a temple in honour of the god of the sea. Looking over the steep cliff you can see broken pillars among the rocks many metres below. I got into trouble with my friends for making the steep climb along the cliff face in order to get a better view. fallen trees also jutted out from the cliff, jagged and ancient. The temple had graffiti etched in from centuries ago, one that stood out was from a British man in 1879.
I have some personal criticisms about this photo, it was taken in the very harsh light of midday which has blown out a lot of the photo and really de-saturated it. However this is because it is from the set of photos we took as soon as we arrived and later the area became too populated by tourists to take a decently lit set. If the positioning of it seems unusual it is because the photo had to be taken at a strange angle to cut out the barrier preventing you from getting too close. Strangely when up to the barrier you were still close enough to touch the temple, unlike the Parthenon which kept you much further away. This temple was much more secluded than the Parthenon and had far fewer tourists visiting, even at peak time.
