TheHistoryPastof Aidipsos


The unique healing properties of the waters were a source of inspiration for mythology. An ancient Greek myth says that the goddess Athena asked her brother Hephaestus to create the baths of Edipsos, so that her beloved hero Heracles could rest here after every struggle.


From ancient times, Aidipsos was known for its beneficial subsoil and especially for its hot thermal springs and were known from the time of Aristotle 384-332 BC. The "Hellopia" of the Ionians in the "Histories of Herodotus," the "Edipsos" mentioned in Aristotle's "Meteorology," in Pliny's "Natural History," the Edipsos in Strabo's "Geography," "in the Edipsos of Evia, " By Plutarch, the Leipsos of popular tradition and the Lyssos of Alexander Moraitides, it is but a long historical reference to the same city, the Loutropolis of Aidipsos. It remains unknown when and by whom it was built, however, it is certain that the thermal water was known before from the 4th century BC, since according to the descriptions of Strabo it was called "Therma of Herakleus".


It is also mentioned that the goddess Hera advised Deucalion and Pyrrha to bathe in the warm waters of the springs, in order to have many strong children. After a while they gave birth to Hellene, progenitor of the Hellenic races. The spa town experienced great prosperity in the Roman years (100 BC-100 AD). The Roman general Sulla created the first baths here and organized banquets. Experience your own myth of relaxation and rejuvenation.
