There was the most important oracle of the ancient Greek world, whose fame far exceeded the borders of Greece. The oracle of Delphi was dedicated to the god Apollo and Pythia, the respective Priestess, had the role of intermediary to convey the oracle to those interested / visitors. At the site of the oracle of Delphi, there was a prehistoric sanctuary dedicated to Gaia, the Great Mother.

The place is accompanied by mystical legends and exudes power and mysticism that create the impression to the visitor that he travels back in time and is at the beginning of the world.
