Summer Baptism at Agios Petros - Sounio
Summer is approaching and it is the perfect timing for choosing to plan the baptism of your kid in one of the dozens of seaside chapels of Attica. One of these privileged churches for baptism is Agios Petros at Sounion . Baptism at Sounion could be the ideal occasion for your Sunday getaway. Sounio have many bays and beaches you can stop and enjoy the delightful journey by car near the sea. Visit the Temple of Poseidon or even a stop for lunch at Lavrion! These are some of the activities that contribute to the selection of Sounion as an ideal destination for baptism. Maybe a bag with essentials swimwear for a fast stop at the beach just before the return and even a treat for you and your guests.
The chapel of Agios Petros is over the sea and just below the temple of Poseidon. Baptism takes place outdoors of the church with a limited space for guests ( 60-80 ). The rock that hosts the chapel of Agios Petros provides you a full view of the bay and the island mood. The Perfect time for a baptism in this church is the evening hours cause there isn’t any shady place that can protect you from the midday sun of the summer.
