4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013 via mobile

A really beautiful sight to see while in Olympia. The best sight I saw - worth a visit and a photo stop. Very fascinating.

“Hermes and Dionysus”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

At the very end (right side) of the Olympia museum. Beautiful statue attributed to Praxiteles (worth seeing even if not by him!)

“Incredible statue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

This statue predates Michealangelo's work by about 2000 years and makes his work look like an amateur.

“Nice piece of marble and history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

It's ancient, it's made of beautiful marble, it's a excellent craft, it represents a civilization... But wait, it's just a statue!
