Delos: A ilha grega desabitada cheio de tesouros antigos

Unique throughout the world is the island of Delos, as the largest natural island archaeological site. No other island hosts so many monuments of archaic, classical and Hellenistic times and is why it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site……

No one stays on the uninhabited island, with visitors arriving daily from the neighboring islands for an unforgettable and magical experience.

Every traveler enjoys a unique tour of the revival of ancient Greek culture on the island that “baptized” the Cyclades, as an island cluster that circulates around it.

The sacredness of this beautiful place is due to the myth of the birth of Apollo and Artemis. According to legend, Delos was a floating island until Poseidon immobilized it at the request of Zeus, to offer it a shelter in Leto.

When Zeus “fell in love” with Leto and she became pregnant, she faced the wrath of Hera, Zeus’ wife. So Zeus begged Neptune to help find any shelter for Leto to give birth to his children. Poseidon took the invisible rock – Adilos – and found a rather protected place among the other islands and renamed it Delos (obvious).

History

Delos had already been inhabited since 2500 BC. and according to archaeologist PI Hatzidakis, residents built their elliptical huts at the top of Kynthos hill. The island was also inhabited by the Mycenaeans in the 15th century BC, when it spread to the Cyclades.

After the end of the Persian wars, the Solar Alliance was founded, an alliance of city-states in which Athens had the primacy. In Delos, the seat of the alliance was the common treasury until 454 BC.

Due to its sacred nature, Delos did not face any raid risks, however, in 88 BC. the king of Pontus Mithridates proceeds to plunder the island and in 69 BC. the island receives another catastrophic raid by pirates.
