The Secrets of the Mountain of the Gods
Pyramids of Olympus

From ancient Greece we know that all the important sites chosen by the Greeks were in strategically important places or in holy places by nature itself. This is also the case with the pyramids of Olympus. Only according to the tradition and the stories of the inhabitants of Olympus, which have survived to this day, these pyramids were created in ancient times, either by an advanced human technology, since they seem to be carved or created by the gods themselves for their own strategic points. In these three pyramid peaks there are the Toumba, Ag. Anthony and Prophet Elias respectively.
