The Olympic cauldron is the place where the flame of the Olympic Games burns in a prominent place in the Olympic stadium of the host city during the celebration of the sporting event.
It is lit with fire brought in the Olympic torch directly from Olympia, the city where the ancient Olympic Games were held in Greece. The route of the fire from there to the host city is carried out by means of relays, until the final lighting in the Olympic cauldron.
Thus, the lighting of the cauldron is a tradition of the opening ceremony of the Olympics, and is usually done with a great show. The cauldron, as such, remains burning until the end of the event, as a symbol of the Olympic spirit.
