2 Delphi_001

The pan-Hellenic sanctuary of Delphi, where the priestess serving as oracle of Apollo provided prophedies and answered ancient Greeks’ questions, for a small donation. Delphi is known as the omphalos – Greek for ‘navel of the world’. The archaeological monuments blend harmoniously with the superb mountainous landscape. Delphi in the 6th century B.C. was a religious center and a symbol of unity of the ancient Hellenic world.
