Temples were built in order to show the power of the rulers and the power of the deities to whom they were consecrated. We can be sure that every visitor to Delphi is firstly impressed by the strength of nature and after that by buildings in the mountains.

There is so much history on this site, and the view of the Mount Parnassus is astonishing. I definitely recommend it!

These ruins by far were one that left an impression. The city in history was a hub where Apollo and his sister Artemis chose to dwell. So there is a temple there in Apollos honor. Also this Is the place of the famous oracles who made the predictions. So there are ruins above an below the street. Make sure you... More

There wasn't much there, but the view was breathtaking and worth the time to climb up the side of the mountain

The temple is and it's surroundings are beautiful, so much to see, and a good price of 6 euros to see it all (not including museum), got lucky and saw it on a beautiful sunny day, the next two days was rain, must see this in sunny weather to fully appreciate it.
