Ancient Delphi

Delphi is famous as the ancient sanctuary of the oracle who was consulted about important decisions throughout the ancient classical world. The Greeks considered Delphi the centre of the world. Delphi had a phenomenal influence in the ancient world, as shown by the rich monuments built there by most of the important ancient Greek city-states, demonstrating their fundamental Hellenic unity. Today it is an archaeological site near a small modern town of the same name.
