Ancient Corinth

After a day spent searching for an electrical wheelchair repair shop, we stopped for some ruin therapy at Ancient Corinth.   I had low expectations because it is so close to modern Corinth, a suburban ruin, and hadn’t anticipated that much of it would be still unsorted and unrestored, so unlike British archaeological sites where much is made of a few neolithic stones in a field.

We started with the Temple of Apollo:-

Then the Museum (where everything was stolen and located in a lock-up in Miami):-

Then we wandered round the site as the whistle went for closing time:-
