Culture of Loutraki. Places to visit - old town, temples, theaters, museums and palaces

Loutraki is a popular thermal resort, however, besides healing springs and a beautiful beach, it is also interesting for its historical sights. On the outskirts of the city, there is an ancient sanctuary, and according to researchers, a large temple dedicated to the goddess Hera was once located in this place. This latter was built in the 9th century BC. Now the sanctuary is in the middle of an important archaeological area. Here you can see fragments of ancient columns discovered during excavations, an altar of the ancient temple, and other restored fragments of the ancient building. On the territory of the temple, they found an ancient furnace for clay burning, as well as over 200 glass vessels that were used for rituals. Artifacts discovered during the study of the area are currently stored in the local archaeological museum.

In the vicinity of the city, there are many interesting Christian attractions. On the top of the Gerania Ridge Mountain is the ancient monastery Moni Osiou Patapiou. To climb to it, one will need to overcome a steep stairway of 144 steps. The history of the foundation of this monastery is pretty interesting. In the 13th century, a young hermit named Potapius settled in one of the caves on the side of the mountain. Later he founded a small cave church, which has subsequently existed for more than 600 years.
The relics of the hermit are now the main local treasure. Thousands of people come to worship them every year. The monastery one can see in this place today was founded relatively recently, in 1952. About 40 nuns live here today. Other religious sights have been preserved at the top of the mountain. Here you can visit ancient churches and admire frescoes created by local artists hundreds of years ago. Copyright www.orangesmile.com
