Stymfalia Lake and mountainous Corinthia

Who has not read about the Stymphalia and the Stymphalian hens in the labors of Hercules? In the reeds of the lake, Hercules killed the Stymphalian hens that were ravaging the place,
strange and terrible birds with the copper wings that roared in the marsh and scattered the destruction of the inhabitants. Her name is attributed to the mythical hero Stymphalo, the first inhabitant of the area. In the area is also the tomb of King Aipithus, brother of Stimphalos, which is still being sought by archaeologists.

Next to the lake of you can visit the Enviroment Museum of Stymfalia, Doxa Lake and so many other beautiful places around the mountains of Corinthia.
