Iamatika Nera

The sulphur springs can be found at the banks of river Setrachos next to the Venetian bridge. The healing properties of the waters were known since antiquity. The whole area was part of the ancient Kingdom of Soli whose kings used the area as their wellness resort combining it with their hunting outings. It is said that a temple dedicated to Aesclipious, to the ancient god of healing, was situated on the same spot where the Lampadistis Monastery stands today. The spa waters have been used throughout the ages to this day for their healing properties.
