Delphi

Delphi is perched on the side of Mount Parnassos in the district of Phokos about 81 miles (130 kilometers) northwest of downtown Athens. Pilgrims visited Delphi from all over the ancient world to seek the wisdom of the Pythia who would recite poems inspired by the god, Apollon. Arriving at Delphi can give you the feeling that you are reenacting that timeless tradition and, even though we modern pilgrims can drive in comfort to the site, it is easy to marvel at the dedication of the countless travelers who made the arduous trek to hear the god’s prophecies.
The multi-tiered complex was divided into several distinct parts which included the Temple of Apollon, treasuries erected by various cities, a shopping mall, a theatre and a stadium. The ruins of these various structures are all that remain of the once thriving shrine which was established by Apollon himself in prehistoric times. Delphi is the Navel of the Earth with the conical Omphalos marking the exact geologic spot.
