Corinthia


Named after the ancient metropolis of Corinth, one of the most famous cities in the Classical world, alongside Athens and Sparta, the whole region of Corinthia presents a quite interesting landscape combining mountainous and seaside sceneries. Settlements dating to 5000 BC are a testament of Corinthia's habitation since the Neolithic period, and the golden age of the whole region co insides with the rise of Ancient Corinth, retaining a substantial importance during the Roman and the Byzantine Eras, as the massive castle of Acrocorinth indicates. In addition to picturesque villages, and places of breathtaking natural beauty, Corinthia is home to the valley of Nemea, the Napa Valley of Greece, with an extended winemaking history and home to the best Greek wines, and also place of the newly revived Nemean Games.
