Delphi, Greece


Another day, another day trip.


At the peak of the oracle of Delphi. Stadium of an ancient games equal to the Olympics. Unrelated to the oracle.


The market at the entrance of the oracle. There used to be statues. 


Delphi was the centre of the world according to the Greeks. Here at the oracle, there was a female prophet who would tell visitors about their future/answer questions from them using vague language that could mean anything.

She was the most powerful woman in the classical world and was originally a role filled by virgins. But one guy tried to rape one of the oracles and so the position was from that point on occupied by older women.


The theatre. Obviously people need to cleanse their soul as a part of the process.


The treasury. The only building remained somewhat intact.
