Kouvaras -The village and "Agios Athanasios" (just near our house)
Entering the village you feel that you are in a mountain village in our country, kilometers away from Athens. And yet you are a few kilometers and less than an hour away. 2-3 taverns, bakery, grocery store and a square with the church filled with flowers a round and a small waterfall outside. And around the village thick pine forest. Luxuriant and green to rejoice the eye wherever you look. In the forest many small Byzantine and post-Byzantine churches and a large monastery, Metamorphosis, on a hill dominating the surrounding area. From the church begins a downhill road leaving the village goes in the woods. This road after a few kilometers arrives at Porto Rafti. With numerous bends is true, but with such beautiful images that you do not feel any difficulty. In a turn to the right you see the mantra with a small door and to the left the brown sign with yellow letters. "Agios Athanassios". Here we are. Park so as not to obstruct and go to see the church. The small door opens and you are in a flower garden. All sorts of colors.The church is in front of you. You must bend in order to enter. And when you enter you don't believe your eyes. Small, humble and yet so "rich". The walls around you recorded with beautiful frescoes. The roof made of rough planks, bare plaster.Sit to admire the beautiful images around you and also sit in the garden to enjoy beauty and calmness!

Lavreotiki extends to the southeast of Attica. It’s about 20 kilometers from the house. The area has signs of habitation from the Neolithic period, as people were always attracted by the rich subsoil. Probably the very name «Lavrion» comes from the word «Lavra» or «lavri», which means alley, paved street. The word can also be found in the great ancient Greek poems by Homer (8th century B.C.), meaning the corridor, or a passage. Since the mines' exploitation has stopped, and until the mid 19th century, there aren't any signs human presence in the area. In fact, the town of Lavrio is a modern town, founded in the late 19th century by European exploiters.
Currently, Lavrio has about (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) residents, while in summer the population of the region is significantly increased. Until 20 years ago, Lavrio was a industrial town, with a population of more than 20,000 inhabitants. Each point of Lavreotiki, either in town or in the suburbs, has something important to show about the Greek industrial and architectural development; a visit to Lavrio seems like a training seminar on the evolution of Greek culture from antiquity to the present day.

Sounio (about 45 min from our house)
According to Greek Mythology, Cape Sounion is the spot where Aegeus, king of Athens, leapt to his death off the cliff, thus giving his name to the Aegean Sea.The story goes that Aegeus, anxiously looking out from Sounion, despaired when he saw a black sail on his son Theseus's ship, returning from Crete. This led him to believe that his son had been killed in his contest with the dreaded Minotaur, a monster that was half man and half bull. The Minotaur was confined by its owner, King Minos of Crete, in a specially designed labyrinth. Every year, according to the myth, the Athenians were forced to send seven men and seven women to Minos as tribute. These youths were placed in the labyrinth to be devoured by the Minotaur. Theseus had volunteered to go with the third tribute and attempt to slay the beast. He had agreed with his father that if he survived the contest, he would hoist a white sail on his return. In fact, Theseus had successfully overcome and slain the Minotaur, but tragically had simply forgotten about the white sail.
The earliest literary reference to Sounion is in Homer's poem the Odyssey, probably composed in the 8th century BC. This recounts the mythical tribulations suffered by Greek hero Odysseus in a gruelling 10-year sea-voyage to return to his native island, Ithaca, in the Ionian sea, from the sack of Troy. This ordeal was supposedly inflicted upon him by Poseidon, to whom the temple at Sounion was dedicated.
Temple of Poseidon
Temple of Poseidon at Cape Sounion, from the East.
Temple of Poseidon at Cape Sounion, built circa 440 BC.
Greek hexastyle temple with Doric columns. The Temple of Hephaistos in the Agora of Athens (ca. 450 BC). Built in the same period and to similar plan (and probably by the same architect), this structure closely illustrates the appearance of the Temple of Poseidon at Sounion when it was intact. Note the surviving naos (internal hall of worship)
Ancient Greek religion was essentially propitiatory in nature, i.e., based on the notion that to avoid misfortune, one must constantly seek the favour of the relevant gods by prayers, gifts and sacrifices. To the ancient Greek, every natural feature, e.g. hill, lake, stream or wood, was controlled by a god. A person about to swim in a river, for example, would say a prayer to the river-god, or make an offering to that god's shrine, to avoid the chance of drowning. The gods were considered immortal and could change shape, become invisible and travel anywhere instantaneously. But in many other respects they were considered similar to humans. They shared the whole range of human emotions, both positive and negative. Thus, in their attitudes towards humans, they could be both benevolent and malicious. Also like humans, they had family and clan hierarchies. They could even mate with humans, and produce demi-gods.
In a maritime country like Greece, the god of the sea occupied a high position in the divine hierarchy. In power, Poseidon was considered second only to Zeus (Jupiter), the supreme god himself. His implacable wrath, manifested in the form of storms, was greatly feared by all mariners. In an age without mechanical power, storms very frequently resulted in shipwrecks and drownings.
The temple at Cape Sounion, Attica, therefore, was a venue where mariners, and also entire cities or states, could propitiate Poseidon by making animal sacrifice or leaving gifts.
The temple of Poseidon was constructed in 444–440 BC, over the ruins of a temple dating from the Archaic Period. It is perched above the sea at a height of almost 60 metres (200 ft). The design of the temple is a typical hexastyle, i.e., it had a front portico with six columns.Only some columns of the Sounion temple stand today, but when intact it would have closely resembled the contemporary and well-preserved Temple of Hephaestus beneath the Acropolis, which may have been designed by the same architect.
As with all Greek temples, the Poseidon building was rectangular, with a colonnade on all four sides. The total number of original columns was 34: 15 columns still stand today. The columns are of the Doric Order. They were made of locally quarried white marble. They were 6.10 m (20 ft) high, with a diameter of 1 m (3.1 ft) at the base and 79 cm (31 inches) at the top.
At the centre of the temple colonnade would have been the hall of worship (naos), a windowless rectangular room, similar to the partly intact hall at the Temple of Hephaestus. It would have contained, at one end facing the entrance, the cult image, a colossal, ceiling-height (6 metres (20 ft)) bronze statue of Poseidon.Probably covered in gold leaf, it may have resembled a contemporary representation of the god, appropriately found in a shipwreck, shown in the figure above. Poseidon was usually portrayed carrying a trident, the weapon he supposedly used to stir up storms. On the longest day of the year, the sun sets exactly in the middle of the caldera of the island of Patroklou, the extinct volcano that lies offshore, suggesting astrological significance for the siting of the temple. The temple of Poseidon was destroyed in 399 by Emperor Arcadius.
Archaeological excavation of the site in 1906 uncovered numerous artifacts and inscriptions, most notably a marble kouros statue known as the Sounion Kouros and an impressive votive relief,both now in the Athens National Archaeological Museum.A column from the temple can be seen in the British Museum.


Keratea (Greek: Κερατέα) is a town in East Attica, Greece. Since the 2011 local government reform it is part of the municipality Lavreotiki, of which it is a municipal unit.Legend has it that when the barbarians came to attack Greece at the land of Keratea,Zeus and Hedes drew the coast together so they can talk and allowed only a strip of water in between. The Greeks were so very few so to give them a fighting chance Zeus and Hades summoned Poseidonis and asked him to send waves bigger than the barbarians ships.People from that time say that even the Hades himself fought on the side of the Greeks. So the sea by the land of Keratea is known as Kakia Thelassa (the Bad Sea) ever since.

I am born in Athens where I live with my family, my husband, my son and daughter and our dog Zeus. I love to be close to nature and this was the reason that we built our country house in Kouvaras, an area of outstanding natural beauty and very near to Athens. I love hiking in winter and swimming in summer. In my spare time l restore old wooden furniture. Often, the difference between junk store dust catcher and collector's item is just one simple step: refinishing. I've put some time into learning this skill and find it very useful. What's under the surface may be a quality piece of furniture that will make a fine addition and that is what l love about it. The funny thing is that my children tell me, were will you put this furniture mom and I reply that I will decide when l finish with it.
