To the eastern side of Attica in Greece, behind the mountain ranges of Hymettus and Penteli, you can visit the historic area of Marathon, the archaeological site of Artemis in Vravron, and the port of Lavrion with its historical fish market and the small ouzo taverns. Spata International Airport and many great beaches can also be found in the eastern parts of Attica.
Cape Sounion is situated on the south-eastern side of Attica. The Temple of Poseidon, ever watchful for invaders from the sea, adds to the beauty of this historical site. Stone, marble, earth, sea and sky are the very core of Attica’s history and also contribute to the quality of the world-famous wine, fish and cheese found here.
