The archaeological site of Heraion is located 15 kilometers to the northwest of Ancient Corinth, at the end of Perachora peninsula. Excavations carried out in the region have brought to light the temple of Hera and significant remains of the early Corinthian civilization.

The temple of Hera is the most significant monument of the site. It lies near a small harbor under the lighthouse of Melagavi. The region was an important part of the Corinthian land during the early roman period. The findings in Perachora provide valuable information on Corinthian art from the geometric and archaic period. Excavations (1930-1933) were carried out at the site of Heraion and the temple of Hera Akraia, above the harbor, and Hera Limenia, by the harbor.Between the two sites, there was a pond that held rainwater. Under the backfill of the lake, excavations revealed around 200 copper cylinders.
