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.
