Delphi is built into the south western side of towering Mount Parnassus, which sadly has not been immune to bauxite scarring. Otherwise, Delphi has as heavenly a setting as the name suggests being built up the steep pristine slopes with views across gorges and a sea of rippling olive trees down to the Gulf of Corinth. The ancient Greeks considered the centre of the world to be in Delphi; it was marked by a stone monument known as the omphalos (navel). It grew rich as it was venerated by most of the important ancient Greek city-states, who built various treasuries and monuments here. The most renowned building is the temple Sanctuary of Apollo the site of the Oracle. The most familiar building, that features in all the pictures of Delphi (there isn’t so much of Apollo’s temple left) is the beautiful circular tholos from the temple of Athena, which is idyllically situated much lower down the slope. We ascend Parnassus till we reach its two ski sections, Kellaria and Fterolakka, which together make up the largest ski centre in Greece. Ski House, Ski Café the shop facias proclaim. The villages are still very traditional with narrow streets and large squares full of men drinking their post church service and pre Sunday lunch aperitifs.

With the holy sanctuary at its foot it is a fabulous backdrop that soars nearly 2500 metres. Sacred for millennia to numerous Greek Gods it is steeped in mythology. Apollo was one such Deity, and his Temple is central to the Oracle’s Prophecies.

You may be tempted to avoid the hike to the top - which is a hike. But if you are fit enough to make the climb, DON'T skip it! The stadium at the top is definitely worth it!

The open vistas provide a top-of-the-world feel to Delphi. The extensive ruins are spread over the slope of Mount Parnassus and dominate the region.
