Exploring Delphi – Greece
Delphi is one of the most important archaeological sites of Greece. The magnitude of the Delphi contributions to the entire ancient civilization cannot be overstated. Many political decisions were taken after consultation of the Oracle. As the functions of the Oracle of Delphi grew over the centuries to include athletic games and cultural events and Delphic festivals, so did the size of the settlement.
Some of the most prominent edifices on the sacred slopes of Delphi are the Temple of Apollo, the Ancient Theater, the Stadium where the Pythian Games were held, the sanctuary of Athena Pronaia with the Tholos, the Castalian Spring, and the various treasuries that adorn the sacred way.
