DIOKOPTO

Situated in the prefecture of Archaia in the Greek Peloponnese, Diokopto (sometimes spelled Diokofto) is the gateway to the mountains around Kalavryta, and poised at the head of the remarkable Vouraikos Gorge. Although it is the starting point for the spectacular rack-and-pinion train journey, which ascends seven hundred metres in twenty-two kilometres through the Gorge, it is also on the Gulf of Corinth coast and possesses a picturesque boat marina. At the Diokopto railway station and in the nearby railway yards interesting old trains can be seen. My pictures on this page show the amazing railway track from the walking trail beside it, from lemon orchards, vegetable gardens and wildflowers, to streams, caves and ancient bridges, to the rugged rock walls of the Gorge itself.
