The municipality of Delfi was founded in 1997 by the merger of the previously independent municipalities Delfi and Chrisso. In the administrative reform in 2010, a single community was formed from the eastern half of the Fokida Prefecture, where Delfi became a municipality. This new municipality with the town of Amfissa as an administrative center corresponds almost exactly to the territory of the province of Parnassida which existed until 1997, but was named Delfi after its most famous landmark, the ancient sanctuary Delphi.

The further we follow the Sacred Road uphill and have passed the first treasures houses, the stronger the massive foundation walls of the sanctuary of Apollo come into our field of vision.

Delphi - A short visit to the Museum of the Oracle

Very extensively we had walked through the outdoor facilities of Delphi, which in deed are rightly listed in the list of World Cultural Heritage of UNESCO, so impressively well and historically explaining are the ruin fields and the monuments and the buildings themselves are preserved perfectly.
