Ancient Olympia

 

Once the site of the Pan-Helleneic Olympic games, Ancient Olympia holds the ruins of many public buildings, and temples dedicated to the gods and goddesses of the ancient times. The Olympic games date back to as early as 776 B.C., yet the Olympic torch is still lit here every 2 years.  After an extensive tour of the ruins, we head to the recently renovated Olympic museum which, houses many early architectural sculptures, and famous statues.
