Temple of Apollo, Delphi

Walk among the World Heritage-listed remains of Temple of Apollo, a Doric temple dedicated to the great Greek god of music, sun, and poetry. First built around the 7th century BCE, the temple was subsequently destroyed and reconstructed multiple times. Some ruins of the once-great, six-columned, fifteen-sided temple still stand and have been partially restored. Enjoy panoramic views of Mount Parnassus from here. Be sure to wear comfortable footwear; it's quite a walk to reach the temple, which is part of a greater cluster of archeological sites. Make your Delphi itinerary with Inspirock to find out what to see and where to go.

  • A beautiful place on the slopes of mt parnassos. A really interesting and helpful museum to look into first, and then some impressive ruins to explore.
  • Another mystic place, with breathtaking view, the Temple of Apollo is as interesting as ever, to built such a sophisticated place in such old times without any technology is unbelievable. The stadium at the top of the settlement clearly shows how much importance the ancient Greeks gave to sports. Still intact and spectacular.
  • Astonishingly beautiful area. View is breathtaking and I don't need to explain how incredible the monuments are
  • What to say, pure history. Try to go in afternoon for better pictures
  • World culture, worth seeing. Beautiful picture availability.
