Morpheus to Visit The Oracle

  

We are heading to Delphi to visit the Oracle!

The pan-Hellenic sanctuary of Delphi, where the oracle of Apollo spoke, was the site of the omphalos, the ‘navel of the world’. Blending harmoniously with the superb landscape and charged with sacred meaning, Delphi in the 6th century B.C. was indeed the religious centre and symbol of unity of the ancient Greek world. 

It’s time for a bit of history! 

We will pull into the famous old naval town of Galaxidi.   

Here is a summary that I found online.  It Looks like an interesting little town. 

Galaxidi is a town with a feel of posh, tradition, and naval history: the picturesque pride and joy of the southern coasts of central Greece.  

Brave seamen used to sail around the Mediterranean Sea to seek refuge in the two natural ports of the little town, Agora and Chirolakas. The naval and the folklore museums bear witness to the history of Galaxidi.

Captains’ mansions and cobbled narrow streets call for and guarantee a relaxing stroll. Traditional architectural elements conjure up narrations of the old times: colourful facades, marble arches around the gates, yards with flowers and pebbles, and stone balconies decorated with figureheads. 

As for ancient monuments, you will find them at the park of the town: the tomb of king Locros and the remnants of the walls of ancient Oianthi.
