Corinthia is a region in the northeastern part of the Peloponnese peninsula in Greece, named after the ancient city of Corinth. The region has historical significance, with Corinth being a powerful ancient Greek city-state and a major center of trade and culture. The modern capital of Corinthia is Corinth, situated on the narrow stretch of land that connects the Peloponnese with mainland Greece.

Corinthia is known for its archaeological sites, including Ancient Corinth with its Temple of Apollo and Acrocorinth, a fortress perched atop a hill offering panoramic views of the surrounding area. The region also features the Corinth Canal, a narrow waterway connecting the Aegean Sea to the Ionian Sea, providing a vital maritime route.

With a mix of historical landmarks, beautiful coastlines along the Gulf of Corinth, and picturesque landscapes, Corinthia attracts visitors interested in ancient history, archaeology, and natural beauty. The region's strategic location and historical importance make it a compelling destination for those exploring the cultural and historical richness of the Peloponnese.
