Sacred Island of Delos - sacred destinations (sitios de interés)

Descripción del sitio


According to Greek mythology, Delos was the birthplace of Artemis and Apollo. Their mother, Leto, was banished from the earth by the jealous Hera, wife of Zeus, but Poseidon took pity on her and provided Delos as a place for her to rest and give birth. In ancient times, Delos was a sacred site second in importance only to the Temple of Apollo at Delphi.

Today, Delos is home to a fascinating archaeological site located a short boat ride from the island of Mykonos. The ruins include a number of temples and shrines dedicated to various gods.
