The avenue of lions seems to be the most recognizable ruin on Delos. You'll want to make sure you walk over to visit the lions and get a photo to remember your visit to Delos.

These lions were originally set up on the island by the inhabitants of Naxios. The originals are now in the museum on the island.

This is a wonderful travel through time and so much greek mythology. Lovely place to take kids although its very dry and gets very hot. There is only one place for snacks next to the museum which is a welcome place after hot treks. Comfortable...More

We were told that these were replicas, and the originals (or what was found) are in the museum. They have the stance of leopards, so am puzzled as to why they are claimed as lions

Beautiful place and boat trip from Mykonos to Delos very reasonable at €20 each but they don’t tell you it’s €12 each to enter the island but still worth the money to see all the historical places

The avenue of the Lions are what you see when you search Delos so it is great to actually be there. The time has been hard on the lions but you get the picture.

This is just one exhibit on the island of Delos. It's definitely the most popular and worth seeing. The statues are replicas, but very good ones. The originals are being preserved and are on display inside the museum.

Terrace of the Lions: my favourite monument in Delos. The marble lions (dedicated to Apollo by the Naxians - 7th c. BC) stand in a row facing the Sacred Lake.

The Terrace of the Lions are here for all to see. But don't be confused, these are not the real ones. They're in the museum.

Apart from being extremely significant these Lions are beautiful and very delicately made for the time. A must see on this Delos site.
