  The town of Lavrion  

Lavrion is located at the southeast tip of Attica, 52 kilometers from Athens. The municipality spreads accross 42,000 acres and its largest part is found in the pine-tree area of Sounion National Park. Its coastlines are met by the Sea of South Euboea and the Saronic Gulf, forming beautiful beaches. Its population is 10,293 residents

 
     
  Mineralogical Museum  

The Mineralogical Museum of Lavrion was founded in 1984 by the  Lavreotiki Research Society  . It is dedicated to the memory of metallurgist  Andrew Kordella, whose scientific work led to the revival of the ancient Lavrion mines. The museum is housed in a small building, typical example of the modern industrial architecture of Lavrion.  It exhibits minerals  and metals exclusively from the Lavrion area, which is considered one of the most important mining regions in the world, as well as items related to the production of silver and lead.


 
     
  Sounion  
Cape Sounion  is located at the southernmost area of Attica (65 km. from Athens) . Situated in an idyllic area, it also has special archaeological interest as it is here where the ancient temple of Poseidon is found, one of the most important sanctuaries of antiquity.
Arriving at Cape Sounion, one is struck by the sight of the ancient temple which is built in the most ideal location. It is located on the highest point of the hill (at an altitude of 60 meters above sea level) and looks like  a connecting ring between sky, earth and the sea.
 
     
  Thorikos  

Thorikos, according to the excavations conducted in the area by the Belgian archaeological mission during the period 1963-1976, was one of the oldest settlements in Attica and one of its oldest naval fortresses.
The main attraction of the archeological site of Thorikos, is the ancient theater, which is believed to be the oldest surviving, in Greece today. It is dated between the 525 and 480 BC and consists of a rectangular stage and 21 seated rows. On the east side of the hill is the largest domed tomb of the Mycenaean period and near the top of the hill are the remains of the remaining tombs.

 
     
  Sounio National Park  

Sounio National Park covers an elongated area in southeast edge of Attica, just 50 km from Athens. The entire area of the park has particular historical, geological mining and paleontological interest. There are extensive ruins of ancient mines and workshops from historical times, and settlements that cover the entire time range from the Paleolithic, Neolithic and prehistoric period (Cave "Kitsos" 2 km north of St. Constantine or Kamariza). In that same cave,  palaeobotanical and paleontological evidence where found, as well as fossils of botanical species no longer existing in the region, such as the black pine, boxwood, the ash, the agriofountoukia (Pinus nigra, Buxus sempervirens, Fraxinus, Corylus), nor in the whole of  Greece, as the coastal pine, the felodrys (Pinus marritima, Quercus suber).
