Delphi the center of the world


It is said that Delphi is a place with lots of energy! This not only due to the history which has cast its veil upon the "navel" of the earth but also due to the energy which is emitted by the contemporary settlement, which still today is a well hidden secret.

Delphi are 187 klm far from Athens, just 8 klm from Arachova and 27 klm from the ski resort.

At the foothills of mount. Parnassus used to lie the ancient town of Delphi , where used to operate the most important oracle of the ancient world. The town is referred, since Homer's time, with the name Pitho.

Another myth says the the first temple of Apollo in Delphi, the God of light, was a shack made of bay branches, the second was built out of bee wax and feathers and the third from copper, as for the fourth, that was the most glorious designed by the architects Trofonios and Agamidis with some help from Apollo himself.

The thing we might bypass when we visit Delphi, is the harmonic combination of the glorious past with the vivid present and all the thing the contemporary town of Delphi has to offer us. Except of the architectural and natural beauty, someone can find here many excellent, value for money choices in restaurants, night life and hotels.
