Delphi & Arachova
Would you like to go to the center of the world?
Delphi in ancient times was considered to be the center of the known world! In myths dating to the classical period of Ancient Greece (510-323 BC), the site of Delphi was believed to be determined by Zeus when he sought to find the centre of his "Grandmother Earth" or Gaia. He sent two eagles flying from the eastern and western extremities, and the path of the eagles crossed over Delphi where the omphalos, or navel of Gaia was found.
Close by is the beautiful village of Arachova , famous for its handmade goods on the slope of Parnassos at an altitude of 1000 metres. Aráchova is a mountainous village nestling picturesquely at the foot of Mt. Parnassós in Viotia, Southern Greece.
