Kenchreae Corinth Reviews
Kenchree Mar 10, 2011
Cenchree is nowadays a small village with many vacation houses owned mainly by Atheneans.In the ancient times it was a prosperous port of the city-state of ancient Corinth and in the Roman times the residential area around it and the port were reinforced with fortifications.
The archaeological site is not as fascinating as other sites in Greece but the area has a significant historical and religious important.The name of Kenchree is mentioned in the bible in Saint Paul's letters who had been there. In a passge he adresses towards a christian deaconess of Cenchree called Phoebe.
The site can be easily accessible if you've got a car. Especially if you are going towards the ancient theater of Epidaurus which is a must see archaeological site for anyone who visis Greece you will see it cause the only road going to Epidaurus passes from Kenchree
There's no ticket for the archaeological site cause the findings are meagre but i believe it's worth a stop of half an hour there before continuing towards Epidaurus or any other nearby significant touristic or archaeological sites.
For those who like swimming and suntanning just 100m away there's a beautiful sandy beach which i warn you is very popular and crowded in summer.
