Kalithea Spa

The facilities at Kallithea were first inaugurated by the Italians with great officialdom on 1 July 1929 and attracted large numbers of patients and scientists from all over the world. The springs have been famous since the time of Ancient Greece for their beneficial healing properties of the red waters flowing from the surrounding rocks. In August and September crowds of visitors regularly came to the area and set up makeshift camps in the surrounding area to be near the spring.

 

Since the time of the Dorian Hexapolis and the time of the Knights, the spring has attracted visitors from the surrounding islands and the coasts of Asia Minor and as far away from the depths of the Orient. The spring was a meeting place for the Orthodox Christians, Muslims and Jews. The Political governor at this time Mario Lago, took the initiative to conduct a systematic study of its waters known to the locals as 'Tsillonero' after the cleansing properties in 1912. The survey was conducted by the distinguished hydrologists and doctors under Gustave Gasperini. After the death of Gasperini his son Carlo took over his work, along with the person who was later to become the director of the curative springs, Enea Brunetti.

 

In December 1928 the first buildings were constructed and considered as Royal grounds in order to guarantee its perfect function. The work was assigned to Pietro Lombardi whose plans made it one of the best architectural creations of that period.

 

The waters of Kallithea were suitable for the treatment for conditions such as arthritis, skin conditions, obesity, diabetes, tropical diseases, dysentery, malaria, allergies, asthma, cystitis, diarrhoea and intestinal conditions.

 

Kallithea Springs - Reborn

 

After years of abandon and neglect, Kallithea town council and its mayor, Yannis Iatridis decided to take on the important task of renovating the site. The springs were restored to their earlier glory with tremendous effort and was successfully opened once again to the public.
