Rion Bridge and Castle of Morea, Gulf of Corinth, Greece, 2004. The Trikoupis Bridge spans the Rion Straits at the western entrance to the Gulf of Corinth. The photograph was taken while the bridge was in the final stages of construction. The Castle of the Morea (upper right) is a fortress built by Sultan Bayazet II in 1499. The Venetians occupied the fortress from 1687 until 1714, when the Ottomans recaptured it.
