Where in the World is Gary? #70

This new series is a throwback to the game, “Where in the World is Carmen San Diego?” I will give a brief description of a place, including its latitude and longitude and several “interesting” facts about the location. I will also try to include a picture or two from my visit to the place. You, the reader, can then hazard a guess to answer the question posed in the game.

I will reveal the correct location on the following day. Hopefully, this type of post will encourage interaction and perhaps stimulate comments. Good Luck!

The answer to yesterday’s place (#69) is Disney World, Lake Buena Vista, Florida, USA

Where in the World is Gary?  #70

Latitude — 38º 29′ North

Longitude — 22º 30′ East

This place was once considered the center of the world. Kings and citizens consulted the Priestess here to learn of their fate. There are temples here to Apollo (505 BC) and Athena.

This place is located on Mount Parnassus where the ancient Pythian Games were held. An amphitheater overlooks the temples.
