Temple of Apollo : Michelin's recommendations
The existing ruins are from a temple dating from the 4C BC, a Doric building with a peristyle, 60m long with tufa columns 12m high. The portico, which housed a statue of Homer, was inscribed with precepts. The naós (sacred hall) in the centre of the temple was furnished with altars and statues; beyond was the crypt where the Pythia sat. The western end of the retaining wall, or Iskégaon (4 C BC), is where the famous Charioteer of Delphi, an extraordinary bronze statue, was found.
