The Lake of Vouliagmeni





Don't miss visiting the Lake of Vouliagmeni when you come here. It is a natural lake in reality fed by underground caves and with a year-round temperature of 25 degrees Celsius.



The water in the lake is well known for its therapeutic properties in the treatment of arthritis, rheumatism, gynecological ailments and neuralgia. The region took its name from the Lake and the word Vouliagmeni means "sunken area". Some of the underground caves collapse and many of them connect with the sea.  Corrosive solution of limestone by rainwater creates very easily karstic phenomena, exactly what has happened with the Lake of Vouliagmeni.

Goodness, you always find such beautiful places. Is this salt water or fresh water?

I think it is a mixture of both because it is very close to the sea. Just opposite.Anybody who is reading this can send a note.

And yes Martin...don't forget that I try to dig out the beautiful gems around me. You know, there is no need to go to distant places to find beauty. Many times it is so near us and we cannot see them. I have learnt to appreciate all, and this place is one such spot. I love the colour of the water...it was cloudy that day and the pictures are indeed beautiful.
