At the foot of Mount Parnassus, between a pair of huge cliffs called Phaedriades, lies the panhellenic sanctuary of Delphi, the site of the most celebrated oracle of classical Greece. Delphi was the navel of the earth as, according to legend, this was where the two eagles that Zeus had sent to find the centre of the earth met. For many centuries Delphi was the spiritual and religious centre of the ancient Hellenic world as well as a symbol of its unity.
Here, one can marvel at the astonishing natural beauty of the landscape, which has also been our source of inspiration. Standing for a while on the Phaedriades, the visitor is stunned by the breathtaking view that stretches below – the archaeological site, the olive groves of Chrisso and Amphissa, and far away in the distance the towns of Itea and Galaxidi, two jewels adorning the Corinthian Gulf. The eye can reach as far as the coast of Peloponnese through a unique combination of colours, mountains and sea under the infinite blue Mediterranean sky.
Delphi is a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the most significant tourist attractions for visitors from all over the world.
