It is called Acrocorinth that means "Upper Corinth", the citadel of ancient Corinth.
Is a monolithic rock overseeing the ancient city of Corinth, Greece. It was fortified in the 7th-6th century B.C and slowly it developed to an acropolis. It changed hands so many times... Macedonians repaired and improved the walls in the 4th century B.C while in 146 B.C Romans destroyed the city of Corinth and the acropolis. Caesar repaired the castle in later times and also another repair was made from Justinian during the 6th century.
Francs occupied the castle in 1210 and they made a lot of additions to it. The castle changed hands to Italian families, then back to Greeks and finally it was sold to Ordre de Malte, who later gave it back to the Greeks in 1404. But still the story goes on. It was occupied by Byzantines, then Mehmed II, Venetians and finally Turks. With the Greek Rebellion in 1821 Turks returned it to Greece.
The view from up there is amazing! Now is an archaeological site that anyone can visit.
