the damage by the earthquakes and the floods, the
site is worth your visit. The setting is magical,
making it the most beautiful major site in the
Peloponnese. Both, the archaeological museum and
the museum of the ancient Games are among the
finest in Greece, making your visit to
Olympia a must. There is no modern
equivalent for ancient Olympia - a religious and
at the same time an athletic centre. Men
travelled from every part of the ancient World to
compete in these Games and the winners became
legends. Over 50,000 of spectators came to watch the
Games every four years and support the athletes.
The area was buried under the alluvial
deposits of the two rivers until its discovery in
1852. Since then, millions of people visit Olympia
every year and admire its wealth and importance
in antiquity. A visit to the original site of the Olympic
Games is a moving experience. Running in the
original stadium is an unforgettable one.
