Koutsopodi (Greek: Κουτσοπόδι - literally "Lame Foot"), is a village and the seat of the municipality of Koutsopodi in the prefecture of Argolis. It is located 7 km North of Argos and 19km NorthWest of Nafplion.

Koutsopodi is located on the site of ancient Mysias which was mentioned by Pausanias in "Corinthiaka". A community by the name of Mysias was revived in the days of King Otto.

The land around Koutsopodi is fertile and in older days a great variety of crops were grown including wheat, barley, potatoes, tomatoes and melons. They have been replaced nowadays by oranges, lemons, apricots and olives. Much of the labour is done by Albanians and other immigrants.
