WELCOME TO DELPHI!
One of the most interesting archaeological sites in Greece, Delphi is located on the slopes of Mount Parnassus in central Greece. Delphi Greece was the most important oracle in the ancient Greek world and pilgrims from all over the Mediterranean would come to ask for the prophecy of god Apollo. The prophecy was spoken by the god through the words of Pythia, the high-priestess of his temple. As the myth says and scientists have confirmed, Delphi is the naval of the Earth, meaning the central point of our planet. Along time, it became also the base of a political and military association, apart from a religious sanctuary.

Delphi Greece is among the most interesting ancient sites in the country. This was the most important oracle of the ancient Greek world, visited by pilgrims from all over the Mediterranean basin.

This temple of Apollo can be seen today in the centre of Delphi, offering great view to the surrounding mountains.

To honor the god, athletic competitions were also organized every four years, called the Pythian Games. The competitions would take place at the stadium, that can be seen on the highest spot of the site, and the athletes would exercise in the Gymnasium, that is found on the southern side.
