Mineral springs were known for their healing benefits since ancient times. Under the Romans, Emperor Neuron systematically took baths to improve his health. The ancient Greeks had the idea of connecting the Aegean and the Ionian seas through a canal. The Roman, philhellene Emperor Nero was one of the first to attempt this conjunction, albeit with limited results. The project was finally materialized at the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century. 6.5 km from the Corintian canal there is the seaside town of Loutraki.
Renowned for its mineral springs since antiquity, Loutraki became a cosmopolitan Spa resort in the 1920’s.
