Delphi was considered the center of the world, the place where heaven and earth met. The Greeks believed that this was the place where man was closest to God. It is the home of the temple of Apollo, the son of Zeus, who was the god of prophecy, medicine, and archery. He embodied moral discipline and spiritual clarity. The path of the Sacred Way leads to the temple of Apollo which is in the center of Delphi. Along the way the path leads one past treasuries which were constructed as gifts of thanks for victories in battle.
