On a hilltop over looking olive groves is where the famous Oracle of Delphi resided. Pilgrims would travel from all over the Mediterranean to get her sage prophecies on their future from the god Apollo. It is said that Pythia would sit above a chasm in the earth and breath in deeply the fumes emitted. The fumes were said to be hallucinogenic and Pythia would slip into a trance where she would speak forth the prophecies she received from Apollo. The Oracle of Delphi was the most feared window into the will of the gods. The Oracle waited for her pilgrims in a cavern hollowed down in the depths of the hillside, underneath the great Temple of Apollo.
On our visit to Greece we got a chance to see the Temple of Apollo and hear the story of The Oracle of Delphi. Here are some pictures of our visit.
