Delos, Greece: Ancient Ruins

published 2 years ago by Rick Steves

The island of Delos was one of the most important places in the ancient Greek world, with temples honoring the birthplace of the twin gods Apollo and Artemis. Delos was important in three different ancient eras for three different purposes: as a religious site, as the treasury of the Athenian League, and as a commercial port.
