Top destination around Corinth Canal - Corinth

The first settlement on the site of modern Corinth appeared approximately in 4,000 BC. This was one of the major centers of trade in the East Mediterranean. The city controlled all traffic near the isthmus and offered carrying services for ships sailing from the Ionic Sea to the Aegean Sea. At that time, Corinth was a popular settlement famous for its ceramics and textiles.

In the 50s AD, Paul the Apostle visited this region. He lived for almost one and a half years in Corinth. Paul established a Christian mission in the city that is mentioned in the New Testament. He continued traveling in 58 AD and dictated his famous Epistle to the Romans. When Corinth was released from the Turkish rule in 1833, the city became one of the candidates for the capital of Greece. Strategic location and rich historical heritage were the main advantages of Corinth. However, the city lost to Athens. Nowadays, this is a large industrial and transport center of the peninsula.
