  • I summarize so. ... Some will and some no depends on the tastes. I do it a lot. Make a stop at the statue of Thermopylae, Spartan 300 Leonidas statue and the famous movie. Next there is a Museum, but I didn't get to see it. There nothing special, although I have seen the movie 300 at least 1000 times. What's interesting are the warm waters that are next to them. You can dive in and enjoy the natural medicine that gives us the nature. There are ropes because the wall is a bit slippery, but beside me there were different characters not very young, so they can do it all. So too can the old. The negative point: this healing and natural spa is left to itself, in the sense that it lacks the care, attention to detail, not just the total care. But knowing you are in Greece this takes second place, at least for me. I loved it, I felt a real discoverer of something new! In person: go to Thermopylae and enjoy the gifts of nature! If you like "things all curatine", forget not your thing. If you are looking for something original and "Spartan", make it a destination of your future I arrived there because I did "Full Sensation" Tour, with a guide took me around Greece. I guess nobody knew that there are some spas, only those on the tour. A few locals use those natural spa. In fact I felt almost like a vip. I'm recommending to closest friends to go before it becomes too commercial and ruin everything as usual. The place is just so better don't spread it too. I could also create a wellness tour.
