DELPHI

Delphi is the ancient site of the Oracle of Apollo, the most important site in Greece’s ancient religion. For the ancient Greeks this place was literally the centre of the world. Legend states that Zeus released two eagles from opposite ends of the earth and Delphi was where they collided into each other and fell to the ground. Thus the ancients believed it to be the centre of the world. Delphi was first inhabited in 15 bc but from 8 bc priests from Knossos, Crete,  had brought the cult of Apollo with them and used the site for worship. A fantastic place to visit.
