Acrocorinth

Local nameΑκροκόρινθος
LocationDecentralized Administration of Peloponnese, Western Greece and the Ionian, Greece

Acrocorinth, "Upper Corinth", the acropolis of ancient Corinth, is a monolithic rock overseeing the ancient city of Corinth, Greece. In the estimation of George Forrest.“It is the most impressive of the acropoleis of mainland Greece.”With its secure water supply, Acrocorinth's fortress was repeatedly used as a last line of defense in southern Greece because it commanded the Isthmus of Corinth, repelling foes from entry by land into the Peloponnese peninsula.
