Korinthia

Corinthia (Greek: Κορινθία, Korinthía) is one of the peripheral units of Greece and part of the periphery of Peloponnese. It is situated around the city of Corinth, in the north-eastern part of the Peloponnese peninsula. Corinthia borders on Achaea to the west and southwest, the Gulf of Corinth and Attica to the north, the Saronic Gulf to the east, Argolis to the south and Arcadia to the southwest. The Corinth Canal, carrying ship traffic between the Ionian and the Aegean seas, is about 4 km east of Corinth, cutting through the Isthmus of Corinth. The eastern coastlands of Corinthia are made up of pastures and farmlands where olives, grapes, tomatoes and vegetables are cultivated. The rest of Corinthia is mountainous. Its tallest mountain is Kyllini in its west and the largest lake is Lake Stymphalos situated in the southwest. The climate of Corinthia consists of hot summers and mild winters at the coastal areas and somewhat more cold winters with occasional snowfalls at the mountain areas. (Wiki)
