Photographer's Note

The Venizelso square in modern Korinthos with the view of Akrokorinthos in the distance.

The steep rock of the Acrocorinth rises to the south-west of ancient Corinth, surmounted by the fortress, also called the Acrocorinth, which was the fortified citadel of ancient and medieval Corinth and the most important fortification work in the area from antiquity until the Greek War of Independence in 1821. It is 575 m high and its walls are a total of almost 2,000 m in length.
