Remains of the Palestra at Olympia, Greece

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.
