The site Iconic place but not the real ones

Nice and most visited place but those lions on the terrace are jut replicas made of plaster-cast. The original ones are house in the great on site museum.

The iconic lions of Delos. Just bear in mind that these are replicas. The originals are in the nearby museum.

This is an impressive show. Having said that, the lions outside are copies - the originals are mostly in the museum, apart from one which is now guarding the Arsenale in Venice. One could ask that as they are copies, why could they not have been made to look as they once might have been?

These magnificent lions lined up in a row is a marvel to behold. It was hot when we were there last summer--take a hat.

Before you go to the replicas, go to the museum to see the originals. Also look and wonder at the 70 or so statues that were created during the sixth century BC and consider where Britain was at this point. Also ponder on the fact that Britain almost ruled the world during the 1800's!!! Where did it all go wrong?

What you need to know is that the lions presented there are only copies, the originals which remain are in the museum at the site.

This whole island is amazing! It is a short boat ride from Mykonos, but on very windy days, it may not run, so plan ahead. The island used to hold the treasury of Athens, and it still holds a treasure trove of artifacts. Loved it!

The island I think is only accessible by boat. The island hold lots of history. We did not take a cruise tour. Mistake. There is so much here one must have a guided tour which is not available on your own. The museum had a friendly English speaking person who helped us understand the history. The museum is also important... More

A spectacular sight, but the lions are copies. The real ones are inside the museum, which is well worth a visit. The museum is included in the ticket you buy to get inside the island.
