Saronikos, with the most indented coastline of the Saronic Gulf, is also home to the ancient “Strata tou Asteos” (Road of the City) that guided, and still guides pilgrims and visitors to the Temple of Poseidon at Cape Sounion.

Also called the “Land of Kouroi (statues)”, which left a mark dating back to the Archaic period, Saronikos is also known as one of the major ‘lungs’ of Attica thanks to the Kouvaras forest. A place with natural harbors that Saronikos’ official page describes as an ideal getaway, both for the body and the soul.
