The temple for Apollo in Delphi was a very important place in ancient history. It was so important that it was said to be the navel
of the world. To this temple statesmen and ordinary people from all over the world came to get advice from the Oracle. The Oracle
spoke in riddles so it was very difficult to tell whether her prophecy happened or not. She gave advise from 600BC until a
competitor, the new modern religion Christianity, diminished her and Apollos power around 200AC. When they started to excavate the
temple in 1892 the village Delphi lay on top of the ruins and some villagers had even used the stones from the ruins to build their
own houses. The village was moved 500 meters to it's present location and below you can see the villagers' old and new view from their windows.
