The Corinth canal is an impressive and magnificent human accomplishment which is worth a visit or even better a crossing.
How many times haven't we crossed the aerial walkway of the canal, considering the bottomless human need to tame the world around, adjusting it in order to satisfy his needs.
In 602 B.C., Periandros the Corinth tyrant was the first person ever who considered this great opening as a possibility due to the difficulties occurring during the transportation of merchandise on land. Because of financial interests as well as more practical difficulties the project was abandoned however the start of a dream was activated which eventually became a reality about 2400 years later. The Corinth canal is about 6 km long. Historically the canal was a strategical focal point of Greece and that is the reason why its creation would make sailing and trading much more easily done.

Even more spectacular however is the view of the canal looking at it from its bottom upwards!
