Be Sure To Relive The Sorrowful Story Of Thesus And Aegean While In Cape Sounion

Greece has a lot of romance to offer through its pack of beautiful villages and mountains and islands. The cuisine in Greece is really the best the world can offer, and coupled with the friendly atmosphere tourists find in Greece, it ranks among the most popular of the tourist destinations of the world.

One of the most spectacular places in Greece waiting with its arms spread for you is Cape Sounion. This is where the temple of Poseidon once stood. the temple and the sea that it deems to protect are symbolic of the quintessential beauty the place has to offer to its tourists.

Cape Sounion is probably the only place in the world where you can see the sun going down in a romantic and elegant manner. This is why it attracts a lot of tourists to its precincts everyday, particularly at sunset.

Legend has it that Cape Sounion marks the spot where King Aegean jumped off a cliff killing himself. Aegean took the dire step being under the impression that his son, Theseus, had lost to the Minotaur, the monster.

 Every year, some men and women from Athens were to indulge in a contest with Minotaur, and when Thesus set out to face him, he made the promise of unfurling a white flag on his ship if he could win over the monster. But he apparently forgot his promise and let a black flag on his ship while returning from Crete despite a victory over Minotaur. This gave a wrong impression to his father, Aegean, and he killed himself in grief.
