The sanctuary of Athena Pronaia ("Athena in front of the temple"), built between 380 and 360 BC, lies about 800m from the main site of Delphi. In the centre of the sanctuary is a circular structure, the Tholos which consisted of Doric columns on the outside and Corinthian columns in the inside. The three columns of the Tholos which are standing today have been restored.
