Delphi

Second in popularity only to the Acropolis in Athens, Delphi is one of Greece’s most important archaeological sites.  Dedicated to the god, Apollo, Delphi was an important oracle and was revered as the center of the earth by Ancient Greeks.

People from all over greece and beyond would come to Delphi to consult the oracle and ask questions about their future.  And the answers could determine the course of everything from when a farmer planted his seedlings, to when an empire declared war.

Significant ruins and structures at Delphi include the Temple of Apollo, the Athenian Treasury, the theater and hippodrome that once hosted events of the ancient Pythian Games.
