Although the site is small, it's a fascinating place to visit. Some excursions include it but if you want the place to yourself, hire a taxi as we did. Worth reading up about beforehand as details about the hallucinogenic beans and the labyrinth add atmosphere! There is signage which gives basic information, however. Very reasonable entrance price too.

If you have an interest in ancient Greece and its mythology then this place is a must see. It's small, only ruined walls above ground so your imagination has to kick in, and unfortunately an orthodox church has been built on top of it, but the chamber of the Oracle is brilliant. You descend down small metal steps into pretty... More

The site is easy to find following the signs from the road Parga-Preveza. The site is situated on the top of the hill with panoramic views over the fields where used to be Acherousia lake and ancient city of Ephyra. The ancient structure on the site is large and partially well-preserved, and large fragments of mycaenian walls are still standing,... More

fantastic site; my archeologist wife says the walls are clearly Bronze Age, i.e. 1200 BC, time of "Homer" if not the Trojan War. very well presented, worth a detour.

There is a staircase to the underworld. If you are a fan of the archaeological landmarks and greek mythology, this is the place to be. Also it provides a really nice view.

Visited the oracle in September 2015. The temple is on the top of a hill and from there you have got the perfect view of the surrounding area. This place holds an important part of the ancient Greek history. It is believed that the priests of the Oracle used to "communicate" with the souls of the dead. The entrance of... More
