Loutra Pozar

Explore Greece

Set at the foot of the Vóras Kaimáktsalan mountain, Loutra Pozar, the birthplace of Alexander the Great, is surrounded by forests, cascades and waterfalls, which flow into the canyon from the Thermopotamos river. Hot water has been a draw for thousands of years at the spa health resort in northern Greece, which is located 13 km from the capital and falls under the European Route of Historic Thermal Towns. It’s believed that hydrotherapy has been practiced in the Almopia area since Antiquity, although the town of Loutra only started developing in the early 20th century thanks to landmarks like the Hotel Avra, which secured Loutra Pozar’s reputation as a spa destination when it opened in 1924.
