The Museum of Delphi
Within the museum there are some of the most important exhibits of ancient Greek history, such as the famous sculptures, “the Charioteer of Delphi”, the “Sphinx” and the ‘Navel of the Earth’’ based of the Greek myth. Around the outskirts of the Museum there is the tholos of the sanctuary of Athena Pronaia, the goddess of Wisdom and widely known also as the protector of the Athenians. In the Ancient times Delphi was a cultural centre because of its omens and prophecies and many of the most renowned Greek philosophers and kings visited Delphi at least once in their lives to find answers.
Castalia Spring is located close to the Museum of Delphi. There you can drink it’s cool water fresh from the mountain spring. Many passersby will stop to have a sip from the spring’s water. Much is said about its healing power and its unique properties. Here you’ll find yourself at quite a stunning vantage point far above the valley. The view of the horizon and of the olive trees spread far and wide, combined with the aura of Delphi creates a spectacular feeling that you’ll never forget.
