Publisher Description

Minute Delos was one of the most sacred places in ancient Greece, the birthplace of the divine twins Apollo and Artemis, favoured early as central, but neutral, territory, leading to the establishment of a major sanctuary. 

Nowhere else in the Greek world have the remains of a whole city and a sanctuary of such wide-ranging importance been preserved undisturbed by modern building. Delos is a grand and instructive site that merits several days of exploration. Its museum has one of the best collections of Greek Archaic sculptures and offers delightful insights into ancient domestic life.


This is a chapter from Blue Guide Greece the Aegean Islands: what to see, where to stay and eat, history, archaeology, art, culture, leisure. With superb, award-winning maps. Written and edited by a team of three experts: historian, art historian and archaeologist, two of whom lead cultural tours in Greece. "Blue Guides still hold the cultural high ground" Sunday Times.
