- About Us
Modern Corinth (ko-rin-thoss), located 6km west of the Corinth Canal, is the administrative capital of Corinthia prefecture. The town was built here after the old town was destroyed by an earthquake in 1858. The new town was wrecked by another, equally violent and damaging, earthquake in 1928 and badly damaged again in 1981.
The rather dull, modern town is dominated by cold concrete edifices, built to withstand future earthquakes. But it has a pleasant harbour,
a thriving stretch of café-lined beachfront and helpful, friendly locals. Unless you’re stuck here for transport reasons, it’s not an especially compelling destination to hang around.
Orientation & Information
Corinth is laid out on a grid of wide streets stretching back from the waterfront. Social activity clusters in the café-lined pedestrian Pilarinou, and the nearby Kalamia Beach, 1km west of the port. At the time of research major works were disrupting the (formerly) social square by the harbour, Plateia El Venizelou. Administrative activity is around Plateia Kentriki, 200m inland on Ethnikis Andistasis.
