Dodona Oracle

Near the city of Ioannina sits the pleasant ruin of Dodona. The oracle was active for about 1,500 years, until the 4th century BC. The Naia festival was held there, a combination of theater performances and athletic events. Party on, Greece.

The theater.

A great setting, mystical mountains in the distance. And a dog.

The oak tree is a recent planting, marking the spot where an ancient tree stood, a reference point where priests would consult Zeus. Rustling leaves gave the God's answer.
