  • Tempio Di Zeus Olimpio
    The temple of Olympian Zeus is one of the most ancient ones since here was the place of worship of Zeus from the beginning of history. Peisistratus the tyrant, wanted to construct a majestic temple around the end of the 6th Century BC, but in the meantime, the tyranny fell from power and his plans were canceled by democratic Athens. A century later, the Peisistratus' regime was so much hated by the democratic Athenians that they didn't want to complete a work that reminded them of his tyranny. Therefore, this material was used to build the Themistocleian walls.Finally, the Roman Emperor Hadrian completed the temple about 700 years after Peisistratus had raised the first immense columns 7 feet 10 inches in diameter. The temple was inaugurated at 121 A.D. The 104 Corinthian marble columns of the Roman sanctuary were a third smaller, Though still the largest in Europe, as was the temple itself, 354 by 135 feet.
