The Delphic Games -
The Worldwide Dialogue of Cultures.

Delphi, Greece

In ancient times, the Greek city of Delphi, together with the Oracle and the Temple of Apollo, was the spiritual centre of the world as it was then. But it was the Delphic Games that took place in the city that were so valuable for modern times.

In ancient Greece the Oracle of Delphi was situated on the edge of the Parnassos mountain range. As early as the 15th century B.C. It was already considered a holy place. People consulted the Oracle to obtain advice from the Gods to help them make crucial decisions.

According to the saga, Apollo claimed the oracle for himself by killing its keeper, the dragon Python. The Oracle became the shrine of Apollo.

After defeating Python, Apollo left Olympia, the seat of the gods, for eight years in voluntary exile to atone for his crime. He did penance in Thessaly as a simple shepherd for the king Admetus.
