Garden Of The Hesperides
The Golden Apples were kept in an enclosure at the northern edge of the planet, and were watched by a hundred-headed winged serpent, named Ladon. The Garden was likewise the house the Hesperides, fairies who were little girls of Atlas, the titan who held the sky and the earth upon his shoulders.
The journey for the Golden Apples was the eleventh labour of Hercules set by Eurystheus. The resplendent fruits fit in with Zeus, ruler of the divine beings and had been given by Hera as a wedding blessing.
