    Description

    Delphi archeological site, one of the most famous archeological sites all over Greece listed and protected by Unesco. Delphi, a famous sanctuary from the 8th century BC, Pythia and the oracle consulted about important decisions throughout the ancient classical world. As for Delphi was settled at Mycenaean times in the end of late Bronze Age (1100 BCE) but took its religious significance on 800 BC. Delphi was also considered as the center of the world, for in Greek mythology Zeus released two eagles, one to the east and another to the west, and Delphi was the point at which they met after encircling the world. Moreover, the original name of the sanctuary was Pytho after the snake which Apollo was believed to have killed there. In addition, the oracle – the Pythia- would answer questions put to her by visitors wishing to be guided in their future actions. The whole process was a lengthy one, usually taking up a whole day and only carried out on specific days of the year.

Hosting six Monasteries in natural pillars and hill-like rounded boulders surrounding the local area. Meteora is also included on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Located near the town of Kalambaka at the northwestern edge of the Plain of Thessaly near the Pineios river and Pindus Mountains.
