ancient village with archaeological sites and vineyards, where Greek hero Heracles killed the Nemean Lion, according to the mythology.

Famous for its Nemean Games, as one of the four Panhellenic Games of Ancient Greece, held at every two years. 
Like the Olympic Games, Nemean Games were held in honor of God Zeus.

The Modern Nemeia Games were revived in 1996, taking place every four years, with participating athletes and spectators from all over the world.
