Overview

In the center of Greek which is the capital of Athens, there the temple of Olympian Zeus located. After 638 years, the construction began to start. Now this time the temple is glory for us but only some parts remain today. Most of the parts were destroyed by earthquakes in 1852 after that parts were not repaired again and only 15 columns survived.

In 550 BC, the time of Pisistratus, there is another temple situated that place After his death, his sons Hippias and Hipparchos started to build a new temple that is Olympian Zeus. Antistatic, Callaeschurs, Antimachides, and Phormos were designed this temple; the height of the temple is 108 miter and the ground is 41 miter. But before completing the temple, Hippias threw out from there.

From this way the construction of the temple many times stopped and renewed again but for some reason the temple fallout. And in today’s time, you can only see some columns.

Managed to get in here for free over the weekend. It is well worth a visit although there is not lots left of the temple. The size of the columns though give you an indication of what once stood here.

Simply majestic! Although 8€ to enter was quite expensive considering there is nothing else to see at this place. No audio guides etc...

A small set of monuments, but worth the time if you can. You can only wonder how magnificent it was in its time.
