Mount Olympus is a beautiful mountain and the highest peak in Greece. At it's peak, is a large temple, which is the home of the Olympian Pantheon of gods. It is described as having huge (but not overly-so) rooms, each with no fewer than three windows that look out to a beautiful blue sky. The temperature is always pleasant and the air is scented with pine and filled with the sound of birds singing. The walls of it change depending on Zeus's mood.
The interior of the mountain is hollow, with the summit of Olympus being held up by the Pillar of Olympus. Should the Pillar fall, then Olympus would crash down and hit the Earth with the force of a large comet, enough to at least disrupt the global climate and possibly knock the planet from orbit.("Full Circle")

Greek mythology also dictates that the Titans used the highest mountains in Greece as their thrones, with Cronos sitting on Mount Olympus itself.
After the Great Titanomachy, Olympus' Palace was constructed by the Cyclops, the gigantic one-eyed Titans who were freed by Zeus from the depths of Tartarus. In their gratitude, they gave Zeus his trademark thunderbolts. Hephaestus, the talented god of the smiths and the forge, created all the furnishings and artwork on Olympus, even making some of the chairs and tables able to move themselves in and out of the celestial hall.
