Why Olympia Is Known
Olympia is a city located in the peripheral unit of Elis, in the western part of the Peloponnese peninsula, in Greece, which is known for being one of the most outstanding archaeological sites in the world. This is so because the ruins of the temple of Zeus are preserved there.
This temple functioned in ancient times as a religious and sports center. There, the first Olympic games began to take place, aimed at paying tribute to Zeus and Apollo, gods of ancient polytheistic Greece.
Olympia stands out for being located at the foot of Mount Cronio, named after Cronos (father of Zeus), and being located on the right side of the Alfeo river. One of its natural treasures is the Nemouta waterfalls, which offer paradisiacal views.
