The Corinth Canal, one of the most important constructions of modern Greece, has played a catalytic role in the development and expansion of trade through the Mediterranean Sea. It connects the Gulf of Corinth with the Saronic Gulf to the Aegean and separates the Peloponnese from Greek mainland. The Canal was inaugurated in 1893, although several rulers of antiquity dreamed of digging a cutting through the isthmus and is 6.4 km long and only 21.4 meters wide. Ancient Corinth, due to its key position, was one of the largest and most important cities in the ancient world. It was inhabited since the Neolithic years (6,500-3,250 BC) and for Christians it is known from the letters of Apostle Paul. Akrokorinthos was the acropolis of ancient Corinth and is the oldest, largest and most impressive remaining castle in the Peloponnese.
