The Municipality of Delphi belongs to the Regional Unity of Fokida of the Region of Sterea Ellada and its present form is due to the consolidation of the former municipalities Amfissa, Galaxidi, Gravia, Delphi, Desphina, Itea, Kallieon and Parnassos, according to the Kallikratis Program.
The Municipality has an area of 13 sq. Km. and a population of 26,716 inhabitants, based on the latest census of 2011.
The seat of the Municipality of Delphi is designated Amfissa and its historical seat is Delphi.
The city of Amfissa is built between the mountains of Giona and Mount Parnassus. It has a long history that dates from antiquity. It was the city-state of Hesperia Lokros (ancient Greek gender of central Greece). Indeed, in 653 BC, its inhabitants moved to Lower Italy, creating a settlement. Even today there is a town called Locri.
Amfissa flourished because of trade for many years until its destruction by Philip II of Macedonia, because its residents refused to pay a fine that had been charged to them. It was later rebuilt and became a member of the Aetolian Confederacy. He was once again acquainted with great prosperity and even Roman years remained independent and did not pay taxes in Rome.
In the 10th century it was conquered by the Bulgarians, the 13th by the Franks who named it La Sole and succeeded as the rulers, the Despot of Epirus Michael I Komnenos Doukas and in 1311 the Catalans. In 1397, Amphissa fell into the hands of Turkish Sultan Vagiazit I and in 1402 it was taken over by the Despot of Mystras Theodore I Palaiologos, who sold it to the Knights of the Ioannis.
From 1410 to 1829 Amfissa was in the subordination of the Ottomans.
Amfissa, although a small town, is modern and has significant sights such as the famous olive grove of 1.2 million olive trees, and the first olives are said to have been planted by the Pelasgians. The Salonon or Oria Castle is located in the citadel of ancient Amfissa and remains of Cyclopean walls are preserved. Also found in the area is a Mycenaean tomb. The visitor can visit the old Tanners' Quarter, Harmeina, as well as museums in the area.
On the southern slopes of Parnassos, 21 kilometers southeast of Amfissa, are Delphi. The Ancient Delphi was the seat of Pilaia-Delphi Amphiction. Initially, the Krissa was the dominant city of the area. However, the Delphi clergy with the help of many Greek cities took the yarn, destroyed Krissa, and so began the history of this part that left its mark in the whole ancient world, not only of Greece but also of other countries. The history of the ancient city of Delphi is closely tied to the history of the sanctuary of Apollo and his oracle.
The myth says that the God of Zeus left two eagles, one to the east and one to the west. The eagles met in Delphi and there was marked the center of the world, the navel of the earth.
The principle of the Delphic cult is placed in the Mycenaean times. Probably the first goddess to be worshiped was the Earth, later the daughter of Themis and followed by Apollo. We do not know exactly when the cult of Apollo began, but we have reports from Homer's years. The sanctuary of Apollo has been known since then and of particular importance. The Oracle of Delphi played an important role in the history of Greek cities. From the oracle they asked for God's advice to begin settlers for a new homeland before being led into a war campaign, but also for everyday problems. Even kings from far-off countries fled to the Oracle, asking for the apostle of God Apollo and offering precious gifts.
Pythia was that priestess that conveyed to the interested person the words of Apollo. Initially, the oracles were given once a year, later on once a month (except for the three months of winter). The ritual was specific. Pythia, the morning of the oracle, was flown to the Kastalia fountain, cemented in the sacred outbreak of bay leaf tobacco and barley seeds. Then they offered a kid as a sacrifice. Pythia entered the sacred, cheering leaves of laurel, drank holy water, sat on God's Tripod and gave the oracle, cries of which the Prophet spoke.
The sanctuary ceased its operation in 392 BC, following a decree by Theodosius I that forbade ancient religion and worship.
The archaeological site of Delphi, which has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, has been to showcase great works and buildings of the important ancient world.
The Temple of Apollo, is one of the most important monuments, and there were rituals and the process of divination.
The Treasure of the Athenians, used as a treasury for the Athenians, and there were kept trophies and other objects that were offered to the temple.
The Tholos of Athena Pronaia are from prominent building monuments.
The Ancient Theater of Delphi is located within the site of the Holy Apollo Pythius
The Museum of Delphic Feasts is housed in the house of poet Angelos Sikelianos and his wife Eva, who in 1927 tried to revive the Delphic Festivities.
In the Archaeological Museum of Delphi are exhibited important works and objects found in the excavations, as well as votive offerings dedicated to the sanctuary, most notably the Iniohos sculpture, the silver bull (6th century), the Sphinx of the Naxians (560XX) and others.
In the Municipality of Delphi belongs also the region of Parnassus, which is bustling with life during the winter months due to the ski resort of the region.
Galaxidi and Itea are seaside areas that attract more holidaymakers during the summer months.
