Castella Beach Hotel Destinations

Every   four   years   a   pan-Hellenic   truce   was   announced   and people   from   all   over   Hellas   gathered   at   Olympia,   in   order to    compete    and    attend    the    Games.    The    prize    for    the winner   was   the   "kotinos",   a   garland   made   from   wild   olive tree. Olympia   was   as   sacred   site   as   Delphi.   The   sacred   precinct was    situated    in    the    valley    of    Alpheios,    in    the    territory Pisatis   and   at   the   enclosure   of   Alte   "the   most   beautiful place of Greece", in the north-western Peloponnese. Though   the   Games   historically   started   at   776   BC,   which   is   considered   the   first   Olympiad,   they   were   held from very ancient times and tradition tell us that they were renewed by Herakles. In   this   unifying   event,   only   free   Greeks   were   allowed   to   take   part.   Greeks   from   as   far   as   the   gates   of Herakles,   the   Caspian   sea   and   Africa,   came   to   compete   and   attend   philosophers,   sages,   heroes   and   well admired men could be seen here. It   is   not   accidental   that   Greece   for   the   first   time   in   history   held   the   Games.   This   was   a   unique   event,   a product   of   a   higher   civilization,   in   which   the   people   were   honoring   their   race   and   Gods,   who   had   favored them with arete, strength and grace. Olympia is 90Km away from Castella Beach Hotel.
