This is one of the most massive temple that has been discovered. It is impressive to see how enormous it was.

The most destroyed of the temples you will get to see but these ruins are huge and very romantic to stroll through.

The biggest temple ever found, no lies in ruins after an earthquake. No chance of restoration as the took the stones to make the local harbour. Its still an outstanding sight, the sheer size will take your breath away

Basically there is not an awful lot to see unless you have a vivid imagination and a great interest in Greco-Roman temples. Perhaps if the temperature was less than 39 degrees C, I could have summoned up more interest. But it was the fifth temple...More

Beautiful ruins of the Olympic god of Zeus. Lots of walking but worth the effort to see all the ruins. Mostly level ground.

This temple is essentially just a ruin, but an ancient one, and nowhere near as impressive as the more or less complete temples nearby. Walk on by to see the great stuff.

The Temple was never completed. Had it been it would have been one of largest built. Columns were curved on the oytside but flat on the inside-a newer technique.

The size of this site is amazing, you really do need to see it to appreciate the amount of time, toil and lives it must have taken to erect.

You will simplex get blown away by the size of the temple and its columns and karyatids. Just imagine the man power they needed to complete this one
