Description

Ilia: the Sunny Land


Located between Achaia and Messinia with the capital in the town of Pyrgos, Ilia is the fertile land, blessed by the nature with 300 sunny days a year.
Picturesque valleys, emerald meadows, vineyards, olive groves, pine forests, orange and lemon gardens comprise the face of the region. It’s called after the god of the sun Helios.


A Bit of History


In classical antiquity, Ilia was an independent state, with the center in the town of Elis and the sanctuary at Olympia, where the Ancient Olympic Games were held between 776 BC and 394 AD. After 146 BC, Elis was part of the province Achaia within the Roman Empire.
The Second World War and the Greek Civil War caused destruction and economic decline of the region.
The return to democracy after the Greek military junta of 1967–1974 stimulated economic development and improvement of infrastructure.
