dc.descriptionContext view over the entire site, looking southeast from the hill behind the Sanctuary of Apollo, showing the Phaidriades Rocks left and River Pleistos gorge below and right; Site in Phokis in central Greece, about 165 km north-west of Athens, which flourished from the 8th century BCE to the 2nd century CE. It was one of the most important sacred sites of ancient Greece, the home of the Delphic Oracle and reputed to be the centre of the world. High in the foothills of Mt Parnassos, Delphi lies between the twin cliffs of the Phaidriades ('shining rocks'), overlooking the valley of the River Pleistos and the plain of Kirrha (now Itea) on the shores of the Gulf of Corinth.
