    [04] Ancient Feneos on Mt. Kyllini, mythical birthplace of the god Hermes

    (ANA-MPA) -- The ancient city of Feneos lies next to the modern-day city of the same name in Corinth prefecture, and features the ruins of fortresses and a wall.

    Ancient Feneos is situated on a plateau the foot of Mt. Kyllini, better known to locals as Mt. Zireia, the mythical birthplace of the god Hermes, and in antiquity was part of the Arcadian region. (ANA-MPA)

    It served in antiquity as an important cult center for the god Hermes, particularly during the annual Hermaea festival. (ANA-MPA)

    The region was inhabited since the Neolithic Age until the Roman Age. The history is present, everywhere. The ruins of Ancient Feneos are found next to the modern village of Feneos, which hosts a folk museum. (ANA-MPA)

    Nestled between the peaks of Greater Zireia and Lesser Zireia is the Cave of Hermes, where Zeus and the nymph Maea, daughter of Atlas, found refuge from Zeus' wife Hera and where Maea gave birth to Hermes. (ANA-MPA)

    The sloped cave is located at an altitude of 1,700 meters and comprises 8 chambers. (ANA-MPA)

    The nearby valley of Flambouritsa is an idyllic biotope protected under the Natura 2000. (ANA-MPA)
