Elassona Elassona is built amphitheatrically at the foot hill range, on the southern side of Mt Olympus.

Crossed by the river Elassonitis (or Elassonitikos) is divided into two parts, the old town, called Varosi, built at the foot of the hill west of the river and the new city that lies on the eastern bank of river. The two parts of the city are linked by three bridges and an old arched bridge, a landmark of the city.

At the top of the hill, where on the Acropolis of ancient city OLOSSON was located, stands the monastery of Panagia Olympiotissa, which is the most recognizable spot of the city. The monastery was built in the 13th century and is the most important Byzantine monument in the region.
