Delphi Greece
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Discover Delphi

Located on Mount Parnassus, facing the Gulf of Corinth, Delphi is the second most visited site in Greece after the Acropolis. The religious and moral centre of Ancient Greece, this city was rebuilt in the early 19th Century. This is where you will find Apollo's sanctuary, the treasures of the Athenians, the mythical temple of Apollo where the Pythia would pronounce the oracles, and a museum, presenting architectural pieces and objects from this huge historic site.
