In ancient times, pilgrims flocked to Delphi to consult the oracle, who sat at the mouth of a fume-emitting chasm. Wars, voyages and business transactions were undertaken on the strength of these prophecies. From the entrance, take the Sacred Way up to the Temple of Apollo, where the oracle supposedly sat. From here the path continues to the theatre and stadium.
