The island of Delos is one of the most important mythological, historical and archaeological sites in Greece and all around the world. In 1990, UNESCO inscribed Delos on the World Heritage List.

Seeing these really made me feel like I'd been transported back in time (the rest of the island's settings really helps as well!). Quite majestic looking even in their eroded (and replica) state, but still impressive. The originals are housed within the covered museum on the island are a definite must-see as well.

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!
