Argolida

Argolis (Greek: Αργολίδα, Argolída) is one of the peripheral units of Greece. It is part of the periphery of Peloponnese and it is situated in the eastern part of the Peloponnese peninsula. Most arable land lies in the central part of Argolis. Its primary agricultural resources are oranges and olives. Argolis has a coastline on the Saronic Gulf in the northeast and on the Argolic Gulf in the south and southeast. Notable mountains ranges are the Oligyrtos in the northwest, Lyrkeio and Ktenia in the west, and Arachnaio and Didymo in the east. Argolis has land borders with Arcadia to the west and southwest, Corinthia to the north, and the Islands peripheral unit (Troezen area) to the east. (Wiki)
