The Peloponnese (/ - /,), Peloponnesia, or Peloponnesus (//; Greek: Πελοπόννησος, romanized: Pelopónnēsos, IPA: [peloˈponisos]) is a peninsula and geographic region in southern Greece. It is connected to the central part of the country by the Isthmus of Corinth land bridge which separates the Gulf of Corinth from the Saronic Gulf. During the late Middle Ages and the Ottoman era, the peninsula was known as the Morea (Medieval Greek: Μωρέας), a name still in colloquial use in its demotic form (Greek: Μωριάς).
