Based on mythology, Mykonos was formed when Hercules, as one of his tasks, threw defeated giants into the sea, who became rocks. Delos, the smaller island right next to Mykonos, was a Sacred Land for most of the big cities of Ancient Greece. Apart from the remains of temples to Apollo and Artemis and monuments dedicated to Roman gods, Delos also has ruins of the Sanctuary of the Egyptian and Syrian Gods.
