Ancient Heraion Perachoras.The Heraion archaeological site located about 15 km northwest of Ancient Corinth, at the end of the Perachora peninsula (Greece). Exept of the the sanctuary of Hera, in the surrounging area were discovered the most important relics of the early Corinthian culture, including an L-shaped portico, a large cistern, dining halls and a second smaller temple.
Center was the temple of Hera in the harbor under the current lighthouse Melagkavi. The area in the preroman years was a vital part of the Corinthian land. The Corinthian art of the geometric and archaic years would be incomplete without the findings of Perachora. Excavations (1930-1933) were spanning the entire area of the Heraion and the adjacent temples of Hera Akrea and Hera Limenia (of the port).

Although there are different versions for the control of the region from Argos, Megara or Corinth, the most likely scenario seems to be under the control of the latter as the entrance of the sanctuary was oriented to the ancient ports of Corinth. During the Roman period here were built private residences, sample that the area was no longer sacred.
At the center of this area there are ruins of Roman house. The oldest building in the area is semi-circular, (late 9th century BC ), which is considered to be constructed to look like the known types of houses - temples of the Heraion .
Just east of the sanctuary was a two-storey arcade - shaped as the Greek letter "Γ", also from the late 4th century BC. The eastern end of the gallery was 16,5 × 5,5 meters, while the north was 17,5 × 5 meters. The ground floor brought Doric columns, while the floor Ionic, is the first to combine the two sample rates. Approximately 35 meters east of the portico there was a cistern with dimensions 6 × 21 meters and finish each end semicircularly.
The reference in Strabo's seer and the myth of Medea's children, strengthen and perhaps explain the existence of chthonic elements in the cult of Hera Akrea, although for some this is not acceptable .
