Temple of posiden

On the morning of January I visited Sounion, Greece hoping to celebrate the start of the New Year with a glimpse of the waning, crescent moon rising over the ancient Poseidon Temple.

Paestum near Naples was founded in 600 B.C. by Greeks from Sybaris. The Greek settlers called the city Poseidonia in honor of the Greek sea God Poseidon. The Poseidon temple or Neptune temple is from about 450 B.C. (about the same time the Parthenon in Athens was built). This temple is probably the best preserved Doric temple in the world.
