This place was situated in a valley in Elis, in western Peloponnisos (Peloponnesus), through which runs the Alpheus River. It was not a town, but only a sanctuary with buildings associated with this ancient event and to worship the gods. This place was a national shrine of the Greeks and contained many treasures of Greek art, such as temples, monuments, altars, theatres, and statues.
