The island of Delos is not just one of the world's most unique archaeological monuments, it is also a living, energy emitting site that casts a spell on the visitor.
The island of Delos has a very ancient history; one can say it is almost cosmic. The island's history counts for over fifty centuries and its monuments bring to life elements from different and important time periods of Hellenic Greece, such as the Archaic, the Classical, and the Hellenistic period.
According to mythology, Delos is the birthplace of Apollo, the god of Music and Harmony, Light and Fate. Even though in the passing of the centuries the island was inhabited and served as a commercial center, Delos was essentially and primarily a place of worship. The island was not limited to the worship of the Twelve Olympian Gods (Dodekatheon), although, as it had already welcomed other Eastern deities.
One can say that Delos was the Mecca of ancient Greek civilization without overly exaggerating. Crowds flocked there from all of Greece and all of the Mediterranean in order to be purified and to receive the grace of Light, in which case the name Delos means: what came to the Light (revealed).
It was considered sacred ground and even birth and death on the island were prohibited.
The island of Delos is abound with well preserved monuments and statues from various deities and as such constitutes a World Heritage Site under the protection of UNESCO but that is not the only reason worth visiting. Delos is a living energy emitting site that enchants the visitor with its sacred aura, a true source of Light and Grace.
