This is a Pear Tree in the yard of the Temple of Zeus at +1.150m on Ataviros mountain. The roots of this tree are founded inside of a water well that has been built since the time of the temple construction (more than 2000 years ago) .

Thank you all for your votes and your comments on my last upload! Especially I would like to thank Robert (RobertTurley) for his precious User Award!

Regards,

George

Your images are making mythology real George.
The world has always been fascinated by Greek myths - here you are bringing them alive.
Our school anthem was 'From High Olympus flows to us the glory' etc
Fabulous pear tree steeped in history.
