Loutraki - Where the Experience will take place
What Wikipedia says
Loutraki is a seaside resort on the Gulf of Corinth, in Corinthia, Greece. It is located 81 kilometres (50 miles) west of Athens and 8 kilometres (5 miles) northeast of Corinth. The town is well known for its vast natural springs and its therapeutic spas.
In antiquity a town called Thermae (Greek: Θερμαί, hot springs) existed in site. In 1847, an announcement in Italy asserting the therapeutic benefits of bathing in the natural thermal spas found in Loutraki caused an influx of settlers in the surrounding areas, thereby creating modern Loutraki.
Visitors and tourists deserve to visit remarkable buildings of Loutraki. On the street 60 C. Lekkas there is a remarkable two-story house, which was built in 1928. Also, on the Street 19 G. Lekkas there is the landmark building of the hotel "Palace" that was built in 1923. Last, on the Street 4 Syrian, there is one of the most famous and remarkable old noble villas of the old town of Loutraki, built in 1956.
A monastery named Osios Patapios is located about 10 km (6 mi) NW of Loutraki on Geraneia mountain, offering great view of the Isthmos area and the Gulf of Corinth.
Loutraki is also well known for its Casino (Club Hotel Casino Loutraki), one of the biggest in Europe.
The Heraion of Perachora (sanctuary of the goddess Hera) is an archaeological site of great significance located at the end of the Perachora peninsula and for the picturesque Vouliagmeni lake.
