  Terrace of the Lions
by sieffron

This is the Terrace of the Lions, which at one time looked over the Sacred Lake, the birthplace of Apollo and Artemis. The lake was drained in 1925 to avoid malaria outbreaks, but four lions remain from the original nine, a fifth one having been taken by pirates to Venice where it now guards the entrance to the arsenal.

Address: Archaelogical site of Dilos, Notio Aigaio, 84600, Greece
Directions: Take an excursion boat to Delos from the quay at the western end of the port in Hora, Mykonos.
