Ancient Olympia is one of the most important
sites in the world – it is the place where the Olympic
Games were held, a place seen as sacred because of its soothing
effect on individuals: the shimmering valley of the Alphios
river inspired citizens of states at war to suspend hostilities
during the Olympic Games religious and athletic celebrations.
The games were held every four years from 776 BC to 393 AD
uninterruptedly and it is from here the Olympic flame is now
transferred to the city elected to host the games.
