Loutraki is the birthplace of the Greek Thermalism and it’s characterized as the premier spa resort of Greece. It has been working as a structured organized thermalism since 1914 while the Greek state was still in the preparatory work of Greek tourism. The modern history of Loutraki begins in 1847, when the first analysis of mineral waters was made by Professor Giovanni Battista Delvinioti. In 1855 the first wooden building bath was built with 10 baths, while in 1874 it was replaced by a stone building. In 1855, the first municipal company operating spas was created in Loutraki, which offered efficient services to the Department of Health Tourism. In 1899 a new modern one for those times was built with 22 baths, on the location where now the modern new spa is, which was ultimately demolished in 1967. In 1934 the exquisite classical architectural building of luxury bath was built which was renovated in 2009 and was connected harmoniously with modern facilities of the new building which is now called LOUTRAKI THERMAL SPA.
The Hydrotherapy Centre «LOUTRAKI THERMAL SPA» is located in the historic and cosmopolitan spa town of Loutraki, within the territory of the old spa town, at 24 G.
