Lake Vouliagmeni is a lagoon in the area of ​​Loutraki, a town in the prefecture of Corinth, very close to the area of ​​the archaeological sanctuary of Heraion and the settlement of Perachora.

We are in front of the quiet waters of Lake Vouliagmeni in the afternoon. A boat is moored and a couple takes a walk holding each other. The nature is beautiful. Then the group of friends sits at the tavern of Michael Papaioannou or "Poupis" (which does not exist today) to have lunch.

We see the filmmaker’s father with the Corinthian Gulf and the mountains of the Peloponnese visible in the background.

A group of friends is fishing and enjoying the view. We see the shadow of a woman in the background of the Lake, the group of friends has moved west of Vouliagmeni and has arrived at the Perachora peninsula, where are the ruins of the temple of the ancient goddess Hera Akraia-Limenia, Heraion of Perachora, the most important remains of early Corinthian civilization that are spread out up to the small beach.
