Things to do Tourist Bus To Cape Sunio with Sunset

Cape Sunio is located at the southernmost tip of the "Attica" province. On the rock that dominates this Cape and borders the open sea, the Athenians worshipped Poseidon, the god of the seas and Athena, protector of Athens.

Because of its strategic location, this place was also used as an observation point for seafaring vessels approaching Athens. In fact, the Aegean Sea owes its name to the association of this rock with King Aegeus.

According to myth, Aegeus and his son, Theseus, agreed that if Theseus killed the Minotaur, he would hoist white sails on his ship. However, Theseus, having slain the Minotaur and elated with his triumph, forgot to do so. Aegeus seeing his son's ship in the open sea, believed that he had perished and fell to his death from the edge of the rock.
