Delphi was a leading religious center in Ancient Greece. The sanctuary is the most revered in the entire Mediterranean. In Delphi there are temples of the gods, the central one of which is that of Apollo, a stadium, a theater and treasuries of the Greek polis, which stored the gifts for the god. According to Greek mythology, the Delphi complex is the site of the Delphic Oracle – Pythias, which was an oracle in the classical Greek world. The monstrous dragon Python guarded the spring. This was the place where the prophecies were to be fulfilled. Apollo killed Python. This marked the beginning of the Pyntian Games, which are the predecessors of today’s Olympic Games. From the 6th century BC. the Pythian Games were held here, featuring musical and sporting competitions. Today, the ruins of Delphi are a tourist attraction and part of the UNESCO World Heritage List.
