Corinth is a city in Corinthia, Peloponnese, in south-central Greece. It is located near the site of Ancient Corinth, which was one of the most important city-states of ancient Greece. Corinth was demolished by the Romans in 146 BCE and rebuilt as a new city in 44 BCE. New Corinth was founded in 1858 after an earthquake destroyed Ancient Corinth. The new city was devastated by another earthquake in 1928 and subject to a fire in 1933, after which it was rebuilt again. The Isthmus of Corinth is cut by the important Corinth Canal, which enabled trade so ships did not have to travel around the Peloponnese.
