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.

This is the most interesting place to visit in the whole Greece. It was a very nice surprise. Nothing on the road and in the surroundings prepared us for the most interesting experience I had. This is a place you must visit in this country. When you think that’s all you discover something else, climb the mountain, see the best picture of the ancient location then there is something more: the stadium. Really astonishing. I warmly recommended this place.
Quaint town located on the edge of a mountain range. Amazing views of the valley below taking in hillside olive groves, the sea and misty mountains in the distance.
