Prepare for an exceptional Christian pilgrimage to Corinth, where the Apostle Paul dedicated almost two years of his life disseminating the teachings of Christianity. This significant city holds great value for followers as Paul shared the gospel, forming a strong connection with Akillas and Priscilla, a Jewish couple residing there. During this journey, you will have the opportunity to explore the ruins of the church established by St. Paul in both Corinth and Kechreai, providing a deeper understanding of his contributions to early Christianity.

After spending two years establishing a thriving church in Corinth, the Apostle Paul embarked on a journey to Ephesus. However, the church in Corinth encountered numerous challenges due to cultural influences. In response, Paul authored several letters and returned to Corinth during his third missionary journey to preach and address the issues. During his stay in Corinth, Paul faced a trial before Gallio in the agora. Furthermore, it was from Corinth that he wrote letters to the Thessalonians.

When visiting ancient Corinth, make time to explore the Archaeological Museum, filled with awe-inspiring artifacts and sculptures. Take a guided tour of the old agora, where the apostle Paul once spent a memorable day spreading God’s message. Visiting these sites promises a rewarding and educational experience. After immersing yourself in the ancient past, admire the grandeur of the Cathedral of St. Paul. Stroll along the scenic newly constructed marina and harbor, where a vibrant array of boats of various sizes and designs await your gaze. Embrace the charm of Corinth’s rich history and picturesque landscapes.

The submerged bridge has a clear shipping channel, allowing tall ships, particularly sailing vessels, to pass freely. Its attractive sleek design is comparable to the visual appeal of the Chicago-style bascule and table bridges. However, the underwater structure limits the draft of waterway vessels.

Two submersible bridges cross the Isthmus of Corinth. One is between Posidonia and Loutraki and the other is in Isthmia. The Posidonia bridge is more popular, serving as a shortcut for locals, reducing extra travel.

Poseidonia’s Bridge is a prominent tourist destination, luring numerous visitors who eagerly anticipate its submergence before boarding their ship for a delightful journey. Notably, each bridge has the potential to sink up to 11 meters, solidifying its position as the most significant attraction in the area.
