In the sunlit Cyclades islands, little Delos was the legendary birthplace of the sun god Apollo and of Artemis the huntress. During the Mycenean period, from 1400 to 1200 BC, the Cycladic Island of Delos was already well-established with palaces and artistic treasures. Home to some of the finest archaeological remains in Greece, Delos is now a World Heritage site.
The town of Delos, which stood at the foot of Mount Cynthus, is now a mass of ruins. Extensive excavations, begun in the 1870s have revealed many porticoes and altars of the sacred precinct, as well as wharves and warehouses, bazaars, a theatre, a gymnasium, and several private houses apparently belonging to the prosperous period of the 2nd century BC. A sacred place since the 7th century BC, matched only by the Oracle at Delphi in importance, the island is uninhabited today, but its two square miles offer a vividly evocative journey back into classical antiquity.
