...an ideal destination year-round...

The municipality of Soligia comprises the former communities of Sofiko, Korfos and Angelokastro. Nested in a thickly ine-wooded area, the seat of the municipality Sofiko is located at 30 kilometres from Corinth. Its coastline is dotted with bewitching gulfs and lacy beaches, of whom the Gulf of Korfou and Amoniou is the most popular with tourists.

 

HISTORY: Sofiko was the theatre of one of the fiercest battles of the Peloponnesian Wars in 425 BC. Historians believe that Soligia is built on the site of the ancient Municipality of Petra, the birthplace of the KYPSELIDES. A vivid commercial centre, Sofiko was a forerunner in the Independence War against the Ottoman occupation in 1821. The renowned Selonda Gulf brings back memories from World War II, since this is where the submarine PAPANIKOLIS took refuge.

 

MONUMENTS: The starting point of our wandering is Sofiko, a head-village built on the site of ancient Soligia amidst a thickly wooded area with pine trees. It is a commercial centre with traditional houses, small quaint tavernas and hospitable inhabitants. Located in a natural valley on the slopes of Mt. Tzoumarka at 2 kilometres from Sofiko, the children's camp RANCH SKOURAS boasts innovative installations with unique architecture, harmoniously blending into the natural environment. Traveling east through thick woods, the road takes to the seaside hamlet of Korfos.

Here the climate is magnificent, ideal for quiet family vacations; small hostels, traditional fish-tavernas by the seashore, splendid vistas, an ideal starting point even for winter escapades. On the coastline of Soligia, the wandering in nature encounters all the shades of green, grey and brown, pine trees, shrubbery and rocks. Really beautiful and eaceful, the gulf of Armonio, Fragolimano and Kalogerolimano have beaches accessible from the main Isthmos-Epidavros highway.

Finally, near Sofiko, the hamlet of Angelokastro has an abundance of fine stone houses and beautiful chapels. On the top of a nearby hill, there is a castle complete with acropolis and tower.

CULTURAL EVENTS: The Cultural Centre of the Municipality of Soligia during the summer months each year hosts a rich cultural programme, featuring painting exhibitions, children happenings, concerts, theatrical plays, sport events and traditional festivities.

Closely knit with one-another, the hamlets of the Municipality of Soligia offer their treasures generously to the visitors of this beautiful Municipality.

TRADITIONAL PRODUCTS: Tobacco, cheese, resin, burning wood, olive oil, olives, fish wine.
