Temple of Zeus


For this one needs a good imagination but models and remains are definitely helpful.  Think of a soccer field and think of a temple 100 ft. high and you’ll begin to comprehend what this was and what was lost.  Not sure what gets the most tourists anymore but if this was intact it would definitely be up there for tourist attraction.  Aside from that, the Greeks were truly amazing in their artistic endeavors and in so many other ways.
