Touch of Olympic flame and torch relay

Before each Olympiad, the Touch of the Olympic flame takes place at the site of Ancient Olympia, announcing the start of the Olympic Games. In particular, on the altar that exists in the area of the temple of Hera, the Priestess, invoking the god Apollo, lights the torch with the help of a concave mirror. The Touch of the Olympic Flame was first held in 1936 for the Berlin Olympiad and has since taken place before each Olympiad, followed by the Olympic Flame torchlight process around the globe to the country of the Games. This point of interest is Flat and Urban. It is accessible all year round. It is accessible through public transport. It has no fee or ticket.
