Greece from Above: The Peloponnese

VGVideos

Content creator and pilot VGVideos used a DJI Mavic Pro drone to create this amazing video from an 11 day trip to the Peloponnese Peninsula in southern Greece, the site of the ancient city-state of Sparta.  The peninsula is technically an island, as it's been separated from the "mainland" of Greece since the construction of the Corinthian Canal in the late 19th century.  The canal, which is shown in the video, is too narrow for large ships; it's main function now is as a tourist attraction.

Παλαμήδι is the Greek word for Palamidi, the fortress built by the Venetians in the Peloponnese region during their second occupation of Greece. The fortress is made of stone and was completed in 1714. Unfortunately for the Ventians, the Turks captured the fortress only a year later and occupied it for nearly a century until the Greeks took it, and their country, back in 1822. Sphereview does a marvelous job showcasing the centuries-old fortress in this aerial video.

In this video, contributor and drone pilot Badios filmed Katerina Soldatou doing her "Greece Has Soul" aerial dance over the Corinthian Canal, one of the most well-known sights in central Greece.  The canal was built in the late 1800's to connect the Saronic Gulf and the Gulf of Corinth, which sit on opposite sides of the Isthmus of Corinth connecting the Peloponnese Peninsula with the mainland of Greece.  While the canal is too narrow for shipping, it is big enough for small boats.

Here's an awesome drone video of a beautiful area in the Peloponnese region of southern Greece, compliments of contributor and pilot chris ikarus. The Methana Peninsula is a landform on the eastern side of the larger Peloponnese Peninsula.  It was created by the action of 32 volcanoes which began erupting about a million years ago.  The eruptions continued until about 300 years ago.  That being said, the volcanoes (most of which are lava domes) are not considered to be permanently dormant.

The Acrocorinth is an important historical site in the Peloponnese region of southern Greece.  It is a fortress situated on a monolith rock overlooking the ruins of the ancient city of Corinth, about 5 km (around 3 mi.) southwest of modern-day Corinth.  Occupied for thousands of years, the fortress was once known as one of the Fetters of Greece by the Macedonians who controlled the region for a time.  Seen here in this drone video by G Traveller, the Acrocorinth played an active defensive role until the 19th century.
