Athens is the capital and largest city of Greece. Is one of the world's oldest cities and its recorded history is over 3000 years and its earliest human presence is starting somewhere between the 11th and 7th millennium b.C.

Cape Sounion is on the south-southeast of Athens. Cape Sounion is noted as the site of ruins of an ancient Greek temple of Poseidon, the god of the sea in classical mythology. The remains are perched on the headland, surrounded on three sides by the sea. The site is a popular day-excursion for tourists from Athens, with the sunset over the Aegean Sea, as viewed from the ruins.
