Corinth has such a rich history in both Greek and Christian culture.  Corinth is located on the Peloponnese province (or periphery) and is the second largest city on the Peloponnese.  Many famous temples are dear to Greek culture like the temple of Apollo, Aphrodite, and Poseidon.  An earthquake in the mid 1800's buried much of the ancient ruins and excavations in the last 100 years has helped to restore much of the history.  

Biblical archeologists have estimated that the Apostle Paul made his way to Corinth in 51 C.E. (Christ Era) and was as large as Athens and approximately only 100 years old at his arrival.  Paul stayed in Corinth longer than any other city along his journey, the Bible gives us the length of a year and a half.  In the book of Acts, chapter 18, Paul spent much time here discussing the church and teaching the word of God. 

A large tourist area of Corinth today is the Acrocorinth.  Different from the Acropolis in Athens, the highest point of Acrocorinth is the site of the temple of Aphordite.  Acrocorinth was known as the area to go to find the concubines and later was converted to a church, which then it is said that it became a mosque.
