The fortified gate of the Peloponnese
90 km from Athens (first exit after the junction to Tripoli)
Right above Ancient Corinth rises the naturally impreg- nable rock of the Acrocorinth; a place adorned with tales and legends. Ruins of the temple of Venus stand at the top of the hill and the ancient fortifications appear in several places below the medieval walls. The extensive Citadel has remains of all ages and all conquerors: under-
ground cisterns, wells, ruined mosques and churches.
