12.A. Archaeological Site of Delphi, Greece

Next: We drive up to upper central Greece. Along the slope of Mount Parnassus is the archaeological site and town of Delphi. Here lies the Sanctuary of Apollo and the site of the ancient Oracle.

Before I show you the ancient ruins, here is a photo of an artist’s illustration of this treasured place centuries ago. To the right is the statue of Apollo, the Temple of Apollo is in the center, the Treasuries are just below the temple and to the upper left is the Theater of Delphi.
