Full description
The ancient Hellenes believed in the 12 Olympian gods, who governed their world and governed the laws of nature. Adored and feared at the same time, from his throne on top of Mount Olympus, Zeus watched the humans who dedicated themselves to building temples in his name. On the other hand, his older brothers, Poseidon and Hades, supervised the sea and the underworld respectively. It would be unthinkable to try to understand life during Ancient Greece, its society or the development of its history, without first talking about mythology. Without going any further, the very name of "Athens" we owe to the goddess of wisdom, Athena. On our route, we will find endless spots and other elements closely related to Greek mythology. - The peculiar birth of Athena - The famous dispute between Athena and Poseidon - The origin of the universe - The war between gods and titans - The life after death We will also talk about the most interesting myths, legends and/or concepts of these ancient beliefs that shaped our present. In addition, we are at your entire disposal and we love to deal with all topics: So EACH and every one of your questions are more than welcome, we can talk and deepen about any topic that interests you especially. Will you join us on this mythological walk?
