Delos is a Greek island that is part of the Cyclade Island chain in the Aegean Sea.
According to legend it is there where Apollo (God of light, truth, prophecy and oracles, archery, medicine and healing; the arts, music and poetry) and Artemis (Goddess of the Moon, the Hunt, forests and hills, child birth, virginity, fertility) were born.
As result, Delos became one of the most sacred and important mythological, historical and archaeological sites in Greece.
Delos is a small island stretching 5 km (3 miles) north to south and a 1.3 km (0.8 miles) east to west. The temple to Apollo attracted pilgrims from all over Greece and Delos became a prosperous destination.
The archaeological site today is among the most extensive in the Mediterranean. Since 1872 the École Française d'Athènes ("French School of Athens") has been leading excavation the island.
The extent of the buildings, temples, statues and mosaics uncovered conveys the fact that Delos was one of the most cosmopolitan Mediterranean ports of the time. Because of the exceptional size and richness of the archaeological site UNESCO designated Delos a World Heritage Site in 1990.
