The island of Delos near Mykonos is one of the most important archaeological, historical and mythological sites in Greece. The excavations on the island are among the largest in the Mediterranean, and many of the artifacts can be found on display at the Archeological Museum of Delos and the National Archaeological Museum of Athens. In 1990, UNESCO included Delos on the World Heritage List, citing it as a “particularly vast and rich” archaeological site, which “conveys the image of a great Mediterranean port with international level”.
Mykonos is named after the son or grandson of Apollo. On this island, the great battle between Zeus and the Giants took place to protect Mount Olympus and where Hercules fought with the invincible giants. According to mythology, the huge rocks all over the island are said to be petrified giants.

Because of this, Greece is a country with a tradition of sports. This is the birthplace of the Olympics in 776 BC. In 1896, the first modern Olympics were also held in the country’s city of Athens.
The two most popular sports in Greece are football and basketball. The three most successful football clubs in Greece are Panathinaikos, Olympiacos, and AEK Athens. The Greek national basketball team is considered one of the strongest in the world. – Wikipedia.
