The Calydonian Boar Hunt Setting

Advertisement - Guide continues below


Calydon, Aetolia

Most of the action in the story takes place in and around the ancient city of Calydon, which was located in a southern area of Greece called Aetolia. Unlike some ancient cities, Calydon didn't make it into modern times. The real action of the story takes place in the wilderness surrounding the city where the giant boar is wreaking havoc. This wild mountainous place is the perfect setting for the dangerous safari.
