The Temple of Apollo at ancient Delphi
There was lots to see including the best preserved stadium in Greece and the Castalian Spring where the pilgrims washed before they consulted the oracle. In the museum we saw the Omphalos, which marked the centre of the world and the magnificent bronze Charioteer, one of the finest pieces surviving from the 5th century BC.
By now it was raining and we were glad to return to the yacht. Fortunately, we had missed rains that had caused considerable flooding in Athens.
