photos from ancient Delos

Delos. "hearth islands" according to Callimachus. The center of the Cyclades where they got their name. The cultural and religious capital of Greece a few thousand years ago.

Here was born Apollo and Artemis, two of the most important gods of the Greek pantheon. Today looks like a city that has emerged through the waters of the Aegean. Temples, houses psifidota, frescoes, statues testify to the glory that once counted 30,000 residents in just 5km2. Really impressive crowd wide with the oldest belong to 2500pCh. and definitely a one-day trip is not enough to see them!
