Delos Archaeological Island

The small island of Delos, only 5 km long and 1,300 m wide, is one of the most important archaeological sites in Greece. With excavations ongoing, it is also one of the most extensively ancient Greek sites. Greek mythology has the island as the birthplace of Apollo and Artemis. A sacred sanctuary since at least the 3rd millennium BC, Delos was also an important trading port, with links reaching all parts of the Mediterranean. During the Roman era, centres of maritime trade shifted and Delos’ importance began its decline. The island was abandoned in the 8th century AD.
