Ancient times, history, art, and religion come together to the north of Athens, forming an impressive landscape of monasteries that are practically suspended in the air. And I say practically, because they are built at a height of 600 meters, crowning breathtaking rocks looking towards the heavens and sculpted by erosion. If you fancy visiting them, all you have to do is keep on reading.
The Temple of Poseidon, some 60 meters above sea level, is one of those places that conveys peace. Visiting it is like traveling back 2,500 years and returning to the Golden Age of Greece. In the province of Attica about 70 kilometers from Athens, it overlooks Cape Sounion like a great giant.
The Acropolis is an emblematic image of Greece. The City of the Gods can be seen from almost anywhere in the city, although there are spots that are more special than others from which to observe this amazing city within a city.
