Historic Site
“They are known as the columns of Olympian Zeus, but they relate to the remains of a majestic temple in honor of Zeus. The temple was the largest in ancient Greece and was completed after a long adventure by Andrianos. Of the 114 columns today 15 are saved. The space is clean with proper supervision and fills you with a positive aura. From many parts of the site one can see the Acropolis with the Parthenon and one view of the Andrian Gate. Prefer hours without strong sun.”
