7The Temple of Apollo in Delphi

In ancient times, the Oracle of Delphi was the most powerful woman in Europe. Kings, Queens, Emperors, and Empresses sought her advice. For Ancient Greeks, Delphi was the center of the world, and the Temple of Apollo their most holy place.

Today, the ruins in Delphi are a UNESCO World Heritage Site. You can admire the grand buildings and surrounding beautiful landscape on a day trip from Athens. The surviving ruins date to the 4th-century BCE and are still among impressive Greek landmarks today.
