DELPHI (The navel of the world)
According to mythology it’s here where the two eagles sent out by Zeus from the end of the universe to find the navel of the world.
The sanctuary of Delphi sets within a spectacular landscape full of mountains and hills in a height of 960 meters. For many centuries, it was a cultural and religious center and also a symbol of unity for the Hellenic world. In the beginning, the site was sacred to Mother Earth and it was guarded by the terrible serpent Python, who was later killed by Apollo.
The priestess, who was sitting on a tripod, muttered incomprehensible words that foretold the future. Kings, crusaders and ordinary individuals were consulting the Delphic Oracle, before taking important decisions for the future, and they were expressing their gratitude with great gifts to honor the God Apollo. The oracle’s fame was spread to the depths of the world as it was believed to have successfully predicted events like the Argonaut expedition, the Trojan War and that Alexander the Great was going to be ‘’invincible’’ to his campaign.
