Katakolo

A seaside town located on a headland overlooking the Ionian Sea, Katakolo is a popular stop for cruise ships offering passengers an opportunity to visit the site of Ancient Olympia, where for thousands of years the Greeks congregated every four years to celebrate the sacred Olympic Games. 
<span 13.333333015441895px;"="">The ancient site, which was designated one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, comprises the Altis sanctuary, the Temple of Zeus, Temple of Hera, the Pelopion and the Hippodrome. Olympia was sacred ground to the Greeks during ancient Greek times. Today it is where the Olympic flame of the modern-day games is lit by reflection of sunlight in a parabolic mirror in front of the Temple of Hera.
