Delphi contain the remains of sanctuaries dedicated to the cults of Apollo and Athena, as well as several other structures presumably built for sports. Providing a glimpse into the ancient world's religious beliefs, these ruins joined the list of World Heritage sites in 1987. Tradition says Zeus determined this location as the center of Gaia, the great mother of all in Greek mythology. Apollo's sanctuary, built here in the 4th century BCE, served as the cultural and religious center of ancient Greece for many centuries. The sanctuary famously housed Apollo's oracle, a priestess capable of making prophesies by channeling the god's spirit. Check online for free admission days, and make the best of your visit by joining a guided tour of the ruins.

  • Unfortunately we had the scheduled visit on the day I was proclaimed the strike and didn't return. Our guide gave us a map and pointed out the site from entry barred. Too bad

  • The Museum is great, everything is well presented, with signs in several languages, including the french. The archaeological site, which is located about 500 m Museum is flan of mountain. Between the entrance and the antique theatre, there are about 800 m, with 200 m of elevation, with more or less time, stone steps so difficult for individuals with some difficulty walking. And the site is several hectares. Take into account.
