Olympic Botanical Garden
The area is organised with informative signs for every plant—for example: oaks, wild olives, almond trees, myrtles, cypresses, and laurel trees—and additional information for the area. This open-air museum presents the plants which grew in the surrounding area of Olympia during Antiquity. Consequently, the selection of species chosen for the Botanical Garden was based on the description of the sanctuary of Olympia by ancient authors and later testimonies.
In this way, the selected species contribute to the formation of the ancient vegetation of the Olympic landscape. A visit to the Botanical Garden will provide the opportunity to be informed about the different species of trees, bushes, and other plants, which constitute the present and the ancient landscape of Olympia.
