Back to Apollo’s birthplace

Delos – a very small island – about 5 x 1,3km was one of the most sacred places of ancient Greece. The island owed its success to its superb location at the very center of the Aegean, allowing seafarers to meet it in the middle of their journey as they sailed from the major commercial centers. There is evidence of habitation in the island that dates back to 3000 BCE. Its claim as the birthplace of Apollo gave Delos a strong religious identity that lasted all the way until Byzantine times.
