Loutraki (Greece)Loutraki is a seaside town which belongs to the Prefecture of Corinthia, located 80 km from Athens and 4 km from Corinthos town. It has the great privilege to be located in a strategic geographical position as it is at a connecting point between Athens and the Peloponese, where one of the most important archeological destinations of Greece are found, such as the Ancient city of Corinth, Sikyon, Mycenae, Argos, Nafplio, Epidaurus, Olympia and Mystras. The region of Loutraki has also its own archaeological site of great importance located at the end of the Parachora peninsula, the Sanctuary of the goddess Hera.

It is largely a tourist town and is well-known in Greece for its vast natural springs. The name itself, Loutraki, derives from the Greek word for Spring. Within Greece, Loutraki is also famous for its spring water, which is bottled and sold widely. Actually, Loutraki is considered the most ancient bathing resort of Hellas. It was known during antiquity under the name of "Thermai" (Thermia Artemida was the protector God of the therapeutic natural mineral water) and considered to be a therapeutic and tourist town. It was subsequently distinguished as the metropolitan center of tourist Hellas and of course, as a principal therapeutic spot.

In 1847, an announcement in Italy asserting the therapeutic benefits of bathing in the natural thermal spas found in Loutraki caused an influx of settlers in the surrounding areas, thereby creating modern Loutraki. 

Mountains dominate the north, northeast and further southeast, creating a very pleasant dry climate in Loutraki city itself. A monastery named Osios Patapios is located about 10 km NW of Loutraki on Geraneia mountain, offering great views of the Isthmos area and the Gulf of Corinth.

Loutraki is also well known for its Casino, one of the biggest in Europe. The town has schools, churches, banks, many hotels and spa facilities.

At last but not least Loutraki has a beautiful 2 km beach where one may peacefully enjoy the clean sea water of the region.
