Parnassos is located in south central Greece, just north of the Gulf of Corinth. It is an isolated massif that is barren in summer, and a popular ski area in winter. Its summit provides an excellent view of the surrounding land and sea. Parnassos is significant in Greek mythology, particularly as the sacred mountain dedicated to Apollo and the Muses. Also, Deucalion and his wife Pyrrah were sole survivors of Zeus's great flood, their ark finally landing on the summit of Parnassos in similar fashion to Noah's post-flood landing on Mount Ararat.
