A monumental project of epic proportions, the Corinth Canal is certainly a sight to be seen. This engineering marvel dates back all the way to Periander, who is considered the first to have theorised the incredible task. Unable to cope with it, he soon let go of it as it was way too ambitious. Centuries later, the Roman emperor Nero undertook the monumental attempt, failing as well.
Many more centuries had to go by as the canal was finally fulfilled many years later, by the French, in the 19th century. The dramatic cut through solid rock unites the Ionian sea to the Aegean and apart from the incredible contribution it has to the easier transport of products, it provides a breathtaking sight that is indeed something to be seen.
This deep cut in the stone offers an unparalleled view making it all the more impressive due to the fact that this is a man-made work, one that flourished throughout the centuries with perseverance, effort and a lot of courage.
