Our Story Trip

According to the theory of the geodetic triangulation of the ancient Greek world, the location of temples and sanctuaries was not accidental, but created conceivable geometric formations. Various sites of ancient temples form equilateral and isosceles triangles such as the Temple of Poseidon in Sounio with the Temple of Aphaia Athena in Aegina and the Temple of Hephaestus in Thissio, next to Acropolis of Athens, which form an isosceles triangle. Or, another triangle with the temple of Apollo in Delphi and again Aphaia in Aegina and Acropolis. What is the purpose of this symmetry, what theories are reflected related to the motions of the various celestial bodies? All these interesting topics will give us food for a different and exciting journey of acquaintance with the three sanctuaries.
