The entire island of Delos is designated as an archaeological site, a UNESCO world heritage site, just a few miles away from cosmopolitan Mykonos. The archaeological site on the island of Delos is the remains of a sanctuary to the gods Apollo and Artemis, and the city that developed around it.
In ancient times, the myth of God Apollo, and goddess Artemis having been born there rendered the island sacred and no other mortal would ever be allowed to be born on its land.
The island bears traces of the succeeding civilizations in the Aegean world, from the 3rd millennium B.C. to the Paleo Christian era. The archaeological site is exceptionally extensive and rich and conveys the image of a great cosmopolitan Mediterranean port.
There is no accommodation on the island.
