Project Subject

The village Kryoneri is situated in the centre of the Corinthian province, at the same distance between
sea and mountains. It is built like an amphitheater, at 740 meters of altitude and has a panoramic view
above the Corinthian Gulf. Mount Vesiza (1.200 m.) overlooks the village and constitutes the natural
border with the plain of the Stymfalía lake. From this mountain, the river Elisson spreads and crosses
Kryoneri and the evergreen plain, before flowing in the Corinthian Gulf, towards Kiato.
