Also, visit Delphi, the center of the ancient world, the “Omphalos” (“Naval of the earth”) whose prestige extended far beyond the boundaries of the Hellenic Universe and the Meteora monasteries, perched atop soaring cliffs, gigantic rocks which have been etched by time into a variety of shapes rooted deeply in the ground yet complitely isolated from the world around them.
