Archaeological Site of Delphi | Delphi, Greece

Basic information:

Delphi was the site of the Delphic oracle, the most important oracle in the classical Greek world, and it was a major site for the worship of the god Apollo. His sacred precinct in Delphi was a Panhellenic sanctuary, where every four years athletes from all over the Greek world competed in the Pythian Games, the precursor to the Olympic Games.

Delphi was revered throughout the Greek world as the site of the omphalos stone, the centre of the earth and the universe. In the inner hestia ("hearth") of the Temple of Apollo, an eternal flame burned. After the battle of Plataea, the Greek cities extinguished their fires and brought new fire from the hearth of Greece, at Delphi; in the foundation stories of several Greek colonies, the founding colonists were first dedicated at Delphi.

The site was declared as an UNESCO world heritage site in 1987.

Buildings and structures on the site

Map of the the site:


Temple of Apollo:
The ruins of the Temple of Apollo visible today date from the 4th century BC are of a peripteral Doric building. It was erected on the remains of an earlier temple, dated to the 6th century BC which itself was erected on the site of a 7th century BC construction attributed to the architects Trophonios and Agamedes.

Delphi was my favourite location in Greece.
If you don't visit any ancient site, you must visit this place. It is so much more...and the museum is fantastic.

Gdy zaś umierają,ostatnie długie tchnienie,przechodząc przez tchawice zmienia się w serię niezwykłych melodyjnych dzwięków.
To łabędzi śpiew.
