Remains of the Palestra at Olympia (Peloponnese). The arena was the wrestling school in ancient Greece. There they practiced the events that did not need much space, as wrestling and boxing. The arena worked independently or as part of the public gyms. The architecture of the arena, while allowing for slight variations, followed a standard plan. It consisted of a rectangular building built around a patio with adjoining rooms.

Greece Travel Inspiration - Lion Gateway at Mycenae, Mycenaean, Late Bronze Age (1600 - 1100 BC), 1250 BC ---- Schliemann went to troy and found the lost city he read about in Homer's epics - dug over 1,000 years too deep, but got the treasure - then he went to Mycenae - Heads of lions missing.  Nobody thought to dig there, knowing it was part of Homeric poems - Schliemann excavated.
