- Carved into steep limestone walls
- Over 6-km long and 26-ft deep
- Spans from the Aegean to the Gulf of Corinth
This 26-ft deep canal with dramatic walls was opened in 1893, but its history goes back to the 7th century BC.
The canal is cut from limestone and connects the Gulf of Corinth with the Saronic Gulf in the Aegean Sea, separating the Peloponnese from the Greek Mainland.
The over six-km long canal is only traveled now by smaller ships, but a large vessel or two have been known to make the voyage.
