One of my favorite cities during my recent tour of the Corinthian Riveria was Korinthos. While this was several weeks ago, my time there is still fresh in my mind.
We met with an archaeologist and explored the ruins and museum of Ancient Corinth. This seemed to take us back in time and was incredible to be standing where the Ancient Greeks and Romans once did. Ancient Corinth is also well known to Christians due to the Apostle Paul’s missionary travels. There was an overwhelming feeling standing within the ruins knowing that I was standing among history.
During a guided tour of Korinthos, we stopped at the Church of Apostolos Paul. There hangs a copy of the first letter from Saint Paul to the Corinthians .
Our tour guide Panagis read the English translation of the letter to us. I think it will sound very familiar to you.
We ended our visit with a beautiful chant by the Nuns that brought me to tears. We were not allowed to take photos but I was able to record. This was certainly a moment I will never forget. If ever in Korinthos, I hope you visit the Monastery of Holy Cross. You’ll be welcomed with opened arms.
We had such a fun evening with the Mayor, his son, Councilmen, and more local friends. We enjoyed dinner at “Καλάδα”(Kalada) which is located in a village called Λουτρά Ωραίας Ελένης (Loutra Oraias Elenis). The food was fantastic and we had lots of laughs but the best part was our new friends sharing a few traditional Greek dance moves with us.
