Poros yesterday and today: some excerpts from the Tourist Travel Guide: Michalis Toumbis Publications SA. <<Nature put all her mastery into making this island. Poseidon saw this and became jealous. But it belonged to Apollo and to get it he had to exchange it with Delphi and Delos. After seeing it the people were dazzled by its beauty and built on a hill, the narrowest point of the canal a beautiful state>> If you want today you can visit the ruins of the temple of Poseidon yes it is possible. Imagine that there in ancient times was the seat of the alliance of the seven most powerful city-states of the time. As we say today, Brussels is the seat of the European Union.
