[item title=”General Facts”]


Edipsos thermal springs were known since Aristotle’s times (384-332 BC), but were also mentioned by Athinaeus, in his book Deipnosophistae (book C, chap. 3), as well as from Plinius in his work Naturalis Historiae.

Furthermore, during Roman times, the springs collected a large number of patients.

In modern Greek history, Queen Olga, the wife of King George A, was particularly fond of Edipsos town and also stayed, in 1907, at the Thermae Sylla hotel owned by the Tombazi family. At the same time, she also established at Edipsos an orphanage bearing the town’s name.
