Divani Apollon Palace & Thalasso - Experience - Sunset gaze at Temple of Poseidon

Sunset gaze at Temple of Poseidon

At the end of the Cape Sounio, lies the Temple of Poseidon within a fort that protects the coast of Attica. Made entirely of white marble, it was erected in the middle of the 5th century BC  in order to honor the god of the sea, Poseidon.

British poet Lord Byron was one of many who fell under its spell, composing poetry in its honor. His name is also carved on one of its marble pillars.

Experience panoramic sunset views from this magical spot and allow your senses to experience a palette of colors formulation in the sky.

Divani Apollon Palace & Thalasso - Vouliagmeni Lake

Natural Spa in the warm waters of Vouliagmeni Lake

Vouliagmeni Lake is the hidden treasure of Attica’s nature. The imposing rock, thermal waters (steady temperature of 22-25 degrees), the labyrinthine underwater tunnels and the lush vegetation create a unique geological phenomenon.

The warm water is known for its therapeutic mineral qualities and healing properties and has been used for years to bring relief to arthritis sufferers.

The lake’s present form was created after the roof of the cave fell because of erosion caused by the high temperature of the running water. The lake is included in Greece’s national NATURA 2000 network and as a site of outstanding Natural beauty by the Ministry of Culture.
