A magnificent seaside route full of amazing scenery and twisty roads. As with many other monuments , historical facts about the Temple of Poseidon are intertwined with bits of legend. It is believed that King Aegeus was awaiting for his sons Theseus return from his expedition in Crete. He was there to kill the mighty Minotaur, a creature with the head of a bull and the body of a man. He saw the black sails on the ship and mistakenly thought Theseus had been killed by the beast. In fact, young Theseus was victorious but had forgotten to replace the black sails with white ones. And this ultimately led to his father’s death.
