The stadium in old Messini

On the south side of Messini is the impressive stadium, one of the best preserved in Greece. Here not only competitions were held but also the youth were trained who had to be fit to defend the city if needed. The ancient Greeks were health freaks anyway when it comes to sports: fitness, flexibility and strength were highly admired. No wonder they invented the Olympic Games. The stadium is 190 meters long and is surrounded by colonnades. At the end is a mausoleum that looks like a Doric temple.
