Profitis Ilias, mount Olympos

Ancient Greeks used to climb up to Ôprofitis IliasÕ to sacrifice to the Greek Gods, they didnÕt dare get close to the highest peaks (mitikas and stefani). These peaks are the throne of zeus, known as the meeting point of the Greek gods. Today the mountaintop Ôprofitis IliasÕ is not used to worship the Greek Gods anymore but there is a small stone church. After it was built in the 16th century by Saint Dionysios the peak was called Ôprofitis IliasÕ.
