South Attica

South Attica, which mostly occupies the peninsula of Lavreotiki, is one of the most beautiful places in Attica and combines points of archaeological interest with unparalleled natural beauty. At Sounio the national park surrounds the temple of Poseidon and the wonderful view from the promontory. At Lavrio the installations of the mines dominate the city and one should not omit to visit the archaeological site. The beaches along the coastline are excellent, for example the ones in Charakas, Thimari and Legrena.
