Abstract: Evidence from the rugged Corinthian peninsula of Perachora suggests that divergent user groups moved in and out of this territory in antiquity. However, neither land nor sea approaches offer easy access to the area. This article outlines the peninsula’s challenging topography, evidence for user groups that accessed Perachora, and conjectures how each journeyed there. It is demonstrated that the Heraion was considered a liminal space because of the demanding journey to reach it, the site’s location, and the nature of the rites carried out there. Reconsideration of how the sanctuary was viewed by the Corinthians is explored based on the likelihood that reaching it was a phenomenological pilgrimage.
