Comments

Mount Olympus is the highest mountain in Greece at 2,919 metres high. Since its base is located at sea level, it is one of the highest mountains in Europe in terms of topographic prominence, the relative altitude from base to top. Mount Olympus is noted for its very rich flora with several endemic species and in Greek mythology the it was regarded as the 'home of the gods', specifically of the Dodekatheon, the twelve principal gods of the ancient Hellenistic world.
