To the west of Corinth, there is the mountain Ziria (alternative spellings Ziria or Ziria or Ziria, or Tziria or Ziria) and the ancient name is Kyllini. Ziria is the second highest mountain of the Peloponnese, with the highest peak the Point (2374m.).

The highest peak of Mikri Ziria is Snow (2127m.), While in Megali Ziria is Lake Dassiou, which dries up in summer.
In the area is the artificial lake Doxa or Feneou, as well as the well-known lake of Stymfalia since antiquity and older name Zaraka at 600m.
