Corinth Canal

Corinth Canal, originally uploaded by alohadave.

This canal was dug to allow ships to save time coming from the Gulf of Corinth to the Aegean Sea.

60 meters to the water, 25 meters wide at the base, and 8 meters deep.

It is now mainly used for small cargo ships and small cruise ships as newer ships can afford to just go around.
