A proud statue of Alexander the Great was unveiled recently in Litochoro , which lies at the foot of Mount Olympus in the Pieria prefecture. The statue is a creation of University Professor Constantine Paleologos and is described to be bronze statue with an internal steel frame, that weighs some 1,500 kg and is 4×4 meters big.
