End your day with quenching your thirst with a glass of “Therma medicinal water”
Besides a beautiful, green and charming location with warm waters, this is also a place with history dating back to the ancient times. Archaeological findings such as old water tanks and building fragments prove Therma therapeutic source usage since Roman and Byzantine period. During the Ottoman occupation the building used to be a hammam (turkish bath).
Therma history goes back to Homer’s time, while, according to the myth, it was there that god Hephaestus was taken care of by the goddess Thetis after falling down from Olympus and the medicinal waters from these springs healed his wounds.
Nowadays, nearby their remnants, there is an organized Spa unit, which functions daily, all year round and offers an alternative form of recreation to all who desire to take advantage of the medicinal properties of those thermal waters that helped Hephaestus.
The water of Therma is drinkable, treats skin diseases and rheumatic illnesses. Salt content is low and its temperature ranges at 44 C⁰.
