Loutraki - Greece vacation


Loutraki is situated six kilometres north of the Corinthian canal and best known for its natural springs, the town’s name is derived from the Greek for “spring”. It was once a traditional spa resort where people would come from around the country to convalesce and take in the waters. The town has been devastated by earthquakes, the largest in 1928 completely demolishing the town. Another earthquake in 1981 has seen the town rebuilt once again in a more modern flavour. It’s now best known as a tourist town and for the spring water, bottles of which are readily available all over the country.

Near Loutraki are a number of sites worth visiting. Lake Vouliagmeni to the West is a beautiful lagoon and a popular spot on the weekends. Nearby this is Ancient Heraion, a site excavated in the 1930s and home to the Sanctuary of Hera.

Loutraki is home to many hotels and resorts as well as one of the largest casinos in Europe.
