Poseidon Temple, Cape Sounio


Greece's Temple of Posdeidon is one of the most important landmarks of the Golden Age of Athens, the roughly 50 year period ushered in by the repulsion of the second Persian invasion in 480-79 BC.  As the leading Greek power, Athens was able to extract funds from its "satellites" to undertake massive building projects.  Like the one you'll see in this drone video by Viajes Los Planet: the Temple of Poseidon.  Located at the southern tip of the triangle-shaped Attica Peninsula, the ruins stand 60 meters (about 200 ft.) over the water.
