Travel | Greece: Delphi & Arachova

December 6, 2011
So here I present to you, the pictures of our second day in Greece.

As I mentioned on the previous post, my mom and I were just too scared to adventure around on our own so we decided to take a little tour to the archeological site Delphi (with a fast stop in a cute mountain town named Arachova).

This was the place where the Delphic oracle was located, and a temple of worship for Apollo. In this era, it was considered the navel of the Earth, meaning the center and most important point on Earth.

Since it’s located on the south of Mont-Parnassus you can only imagine the astonishing sightseeing it offers. I can assure you that I’m a bit disappointed of my pictures since the don’t do justice to the beauty of this place.
The last picture is of the town of Arachova, which has a certain magic in it though unfortunately due to our tight schedule we could be there only during 20 min. which didn’t give me the chance to go wander and take photos to share with you.

ES:  Aquí estan las fotos de nuestro segundo día en Grecia. Como les conté en el post pasado, mi mamá y yo teníamos mucho miedo de salir solas en Atenas así que decidimos tomar un tour que nos llevó a la zona arquelógica de Delphi y a pasar un ratito en un pueblito llamado Arachova.
Es en Delphi donde el oráculo se encontraba, ademas de un templo para adorar a Apollo. En esta era, este punto era considerado el centro de la Tierra.
Dado que esta localizado al sur del Monte Parnassus ya se podrán imaginar la vista espectacular que ofrece. Y la verdad, mis fotos no le hacen nada justicia.
La última foto la tomé en Arachova, un pueblito muy lindo pero que no tuve oportunidad de conocer mucho ya que ibamos apretados de tiempo.
