Corinth is a city and former municipality in Corinthia, Peloponnese, Greece. It is important to know that there is new Corinth and the Ancient one. If you go to "Corinth" that usually means you are going to the new one, i.e. all the archaelogical sites are not there, but a little outside the city (5 km).
The area is known to be inhabited at least since 6000BC. Nevertheless little in the town reminds its old glories, since it has been hit severely by earthquakes, destroying most of its old constructions.
