A modern day region with strong ties to Ancient Greece, Elis is a tranquil and pastoral part of in the Peloponnese Peninsula in the west of the country, where an air of mythology and legends pervade every grain of the landscape. Once an independent state, the main part of the region was the sanctuary of Olympia, where the classical Olympic Games where held for over 400 years. When the modern reincarnation of this world-famous sports event returned to Greece in 2004, the shotput event was held at the restored site at Olympia. This complex of stunning ruins also include temples to Hera and Zeus, the latter of which used to house an enormous gold statue to the god of gods. Named as one of the Seven Wonders of the Classical World, it sadly no longer exists. The temple and the rest of Olympia, however, is still worth a visit.
In the millennia that followed, the region changed hands many times between such various rulers as the Romans, Venetians and Ottomans, before becoming part of the reunified Greece in the early 19th century. Today the area remains a rural and calm part of the Mediterranean, where luxurious resorts along the scenic coastline, mixed with a number of ruins from the last 3,000 years, make it an alluring escape for holidaymakers of all ages, seeking a relaxing sanctuary on the Greek Mainland.
