Loutraki is the birthplace of the Greek Thermalism and it’s characterized as the premier spa resort of Greece. LOUTRAKI THERMAL SPA is located in the city of Loutraki, in the north cove of the Corinthian Gulf. It has been a famous place for its healing waters since the ancient times, then called "Thermae" and owes its name to the thermal baths which were located above the thermal springs.

protector of the hot thermal springs and is the favorite city of the gods.

HERA had temples for their worship.

The beneficial effects of thermal water of Loutraki were well known much earlier in the ancient world, since the first reference for their beneficial properties had already been done by the historian Xenophon, who in his works
"Greek", states that Spartan soldiers after battles resorted to the curative waters of the Thermae to rest and rejuvenate, in the today’s city of Loutraki.
