On the southernmost point of land on mainland Greece lies one of the most beautiful temples in the world. Perched high on a cliff overlooking the blue sea with no other buildings to block the view, this is the perfect place to while away a warm afternoon.

The stark white of the Temple of Posidon, built in the 5th century B.C., stands out against the blue sky.
