According to legend, the region was the birthplace of Zeus, the God of gods. Wherever you go, you can feel his presence and the souls of the zoomorphic gods and goddesses who allegedly surrounded him...
     Eurynome, a Titan goddess with the tail of a fish who became his third wife and bore him the graces; Pan, a better known figure from Greek mythology with the legs, tail and horns of a goat who played his panpipes in pastoral Arcadia and Demeter, a goddess with the head of a horse who sought refuge in a cave after her brother Poseidon assumed the form of a stallion and coupled with her.
