‎⁨Loutraki⁩ ⁨Greece⁩

Loutraki is a seaside resort on the Gulf of Corinth, in Corinthia, Greece. It is located 81 kilometers (50 miles) west of Athens and 8 kilometers (5 miles) northeast of Corinth. The town is well known for its vast natural springs and its therapeutic spas.

Historicly, a town called Thermae (Greek: Θερμαί, hot springs) existed on the site. In 1847, the natural thermal spas found in Loutraki caused an influx of settlers in the surrounding areas, and thereby creating modern Loutraki. In 1928 Loutraki was completely destroyed by an earthquake and rebuilt.

Why should you visit Loutraki?

1) Loutraki is not commonly mentioned, when you hear people talking about the most touristic destinations in Greece, but this place has it’s on magnets of beauty. The town is bordered by the Gulf of Corinth in the west, while the mountain range of Geraneia dominates north and east. There is a small valley in the southwest that leads to the Isthmus of Corinth. Although part of Corinthia Prefecture, Loutraki is situated northwest of the Corinth Canal thus not on the Peloponnese.

2) There is a monastery named Osios Patapios located about 10 km from Loutraki on Geraneia mountain. It gives a great view of the Isthmus area and the Gulf of Corinth.

3) Did you know that Loutraki is well known for its Casino? In fact one of the biggest in Europe.

5) The Heraion of Perachora is an archaeological site of great significance and located at the end of the Perachora peninsula.

I didn’t have much time to visit the entire town, but I managed to capture the natural beauty that Loutraki is holding for you. Watch the video below and let me know which city would you like to know about before you visit. I will tell you all about it.
