          Photos of Delphi

It is worth visiting the archaeological site of Delphi and its museum. Its history begins in 1400 BC and is directly connected to the Oracle of Delphi. Kings, warriors came to Delphi to consult the oracle of Pythia (the priestess). In exchange they offered treasures and a specific tax called "pelanos". In this way the Oracle became one of the wealthiest sanctuaries of the ancient world. As in the case of Olympia, games used to be held at Delphi, know as the Pythian games. They took place every four years in honor of the god Apollo and included contests among poets, musicians, philosophers etc.
