THE CORINTHIAN CANAL CROSSING : The Isthmus of Corinth, the narrow piece of land that once united, a strip of land, and now with the canal separates the Peloponnese from Central Greece, connecting the two seas, the Corinthian Gulf with the Saronic Gulf, is a special landscape of its technical culture.
The total length of the canal is 6,343 m. of which 540m. are the two prolific. The height of the slopes reaches 79 m. From the sea surface. its width is 24.6 m at sea level and 21.3 m at the bottom. The depth of the axis reaches 8.30 m.
The eastern mouth of the canal is protected by the Isthmia jetty, with its shipyard, which is the beginning of the industrial zone of Corinth.
The area owes its name to Isthmia, an ancient struggle in honor of Poseidon, whose temple was located near the wall that stretched from one sea to another and defended the Isthmus. This wall became known by its medieval name Examili due to its length, close to six Roman miles about 7 km. The name of the god has been given to the western entrance-exit of the canal, Poseidonia, which is protected by two jetties.
