Cosmopolitan gateway

Mineral springs were known for their healing benefits since ancient times. Under the Romans, Emperor Neuron systematically took baths to improve his health. The ancient Greeks had the idea of connecting the Aegean and the Ionian seas through a canal. The Roman philhellene Emperor Nero was one of the first to attempt this conjunction – albeit with limited results. The project finally materialized at the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century. 6.5 km from the Corinthian canal there is the seaside town of Loutraki. Renowned for its mineral water springs since antiquity, Loutraki became a cosmopolitan Spa resort in the 1920s – and has never left fashion ever since. And though retaining its delightful retro feel, it also lives and breathes for the here and now. Enjoy a detoxing experience in its thoroughly modern Spa facilities; test your luck in its glamorous casino- one of the largest in Europe; try local food and drinks in its plethora of restaurants, tavernas, cafes, and bars; or just take a stroll in its waterfront promenade.

One of exceptional beauty

This lively seaside resort furthermore boasts stunning natural scenery with crystal clear waters and pine trees cascading down to sea level; as well as a wealth of attractions including ancient and Byzantine monuments, such as the monastery of St. Potapius at 600 meters above sea level. The whole area is, in fact, one of exceptional beauty: Vouliagmeni lake is one of a kind mineral seawater lake with a water sports school and some great tavernas; while towards the end of the peninsula there is the ancient temple of Hera.
