The high fortress of Acros Corinth absolutely is a must to visit when you come to Corinth. It's a 575 metres high hill, overlooking the wide surroundings of the city.
The oldest parts of the walls of the Fortress come from the 2nd century B.C. and parts were added all the time untill the Venetian Period. Inside the walls a famous temple, dedicated to Aphrodite, was built, just as later there were built churches and even a mosque.
In total three rings of wall surround the enormous inside. The walls were partly rebuilt during large renovations that started in 1930, and go on untill now. But fortunately the nature still has an imported role inside the fortress, because it makes a magnificent and photogenic mix between nature and culture.
Acros Corinth is free to visit, and is very quiet. It's a great place to relax, especially at the end of the day, when the most of the tourists are gone already.
Directions: First follow directions towards Archaia Korinthos, and then towards Akros Korinthos
