From Olympia the road leads to the district of Lala
and the mountains of Pholoe.
The village of Lala is built at an altitude of 600 meters, in a lush area filled with cherry and walnut trees.
The village boundaries mark the start of the enormous oak forest of Pholoe, redolent with legends and traditions. Pholoe was the kingdom of the benevolent centaur, Pholos, who gave shelter to Herakles.
At 800 meters, the settlement of Lambia (Divri) stands out, drenched in greenery. It consists of seven neighborhoods, each with its own name, church and fountain. A bit further on lies the village of Tripotama. Ilia has so many delightful mountain villages.
Dotting tree-filled slopes or tucked away in the heart of a forest, they seem like hamlets out of a fairy tale.
