Oracle of the dead

The oracle of the dead -of the ancient Greek world- lies near the northwest shores of the Acherousian Lake, where Acheron and Kokytos, the rivers of Hades, meet.

The Nekromanteion was an ancient Greek temple of necromancy devoted to Hades and Persephone.

  1. The Oracle of the Dead, that is an awesome name, is that the name of the location? David and I would be drawn to it for sure if so, plus it looks amazing, we love seeing places that we imagine if we were living back then, or touching stones that we know so many have touched and what stories they could tell….

    1. Thank you, David and Laura Speer, for your comment. I translated the word “Necromanteion | Necro + manteion”, which literally means the “Oracle of the dead. “The Necromanteion of Acheron” is the name for the small archaeological site, which is located in North-West Greece, in Epirus, next to Ionian Sea, and next to Acheron river, the river of Hades… lol… You’ ll find more info if you search on uncle Google.

      Actually, there is more fun on the Acheron river. You can walk and swim in the river, which is cold like hell, no matter if it is summer and you deal with the highest temperature. A few boats make a tour in the river and you can see wonderful things from what we call “wild life”. Here’s a video : https://outosego.com/2019/08/31/acheron-the-river-of-hades/

      And, of course, the location is a spot that has access to the Ionian islands.

      Ps 1 : I think you’ ll get the feeling, the one you describe, if you visit the Acropolis, and the ancient agora , and the area around Acropolis. I really do thank you for your comment, and your comments in general. I’m reading your articles from the travel of yours to Alaska, and i enjoy your descriptions and your wonderful pictures.

      Ps 2 : I write your blog here, for whoever is interested to visit you and read your wonderful articles : https://daveandlaurasdream.com/blog/

      1. Wow, this is all wonderful. We just like checking in on your site – for the interesting place, and photos. When I see you have posted something new, we just are happy to check it out. I do remember looking at your river of hades video – again another stop we would have to see. I guess we just love the idea of Greece and all the history. One of our close friends who is from Greece and we meet up with every year, he is always selling us on the romance of the place.

    1. Thank you, Lori, for passing by, and for your comment, dear. Actually, it doesn’t take long to explore it when you’ re there. I mean it’s not a huge archaeological site. But people like to visit the place since it’s close to Acheron river and to Ionian sea where they like to spend some time. I wish you are doing great, Lori.

            1. You’ ll make it one day, dear. It isn’t only Greece.
              The whole world is full of wonderful places. Yes, it was a bit creepy. Imagine this room without lights, or you better imagine it with light coming out from torches. Creepy ! Imagine that in order to get down there, they had to go through other procedures for at least a week, to purify and to prepare themselves psychologically. Which means that after a week -following different kind of ceremonial procedures- you are already into this, and -of course- emotionally vulnerable.

              1. Neat history lesson ❤️, thank you for sharing all of your worldly knowledge! Even though I’m stuck where I am right now, I can travel and learn through others such as yourself. Thank you 😊!
