Cape Matapan, also named as Cape Tainaron or Taenarum, or Cape Tenaro, is situated at the end of the Mani Peninsula, Greece. Cape Matapan is the southernmost point of mainland Greece, and the second southernmost point in mainland Europe. It separates the Messenian Gulf in the west from the Laconian Gulf in the east.

Cape Taenarum in classical antiquity was the site of the city of Taenarum, now in ruins. In ancient Greek mythology the eponymous ctistes — the founder-hero of the city — was Taenarus, who was credited with establishing the city's important temple of Poseidon.
