Corinth Canal
Just a few pictures of this amazing canal, first proposed in the 7th century BC and finally completed
in the 19th century AD. It cuts through the Isthmus of Corinth, separating the Peloponnese
 from Attica on the Mainland. My pictures show the fascinating road bridge. It doesn't open
 to allow boats through to the sea, but sinks into the water so they can sail over the top of it.
