Heraion and Vouliagmeli Lake

Heraion and Vouliagmeni Lake are a 20 minutes drive away from Loutraki and it has been declared as a region of rare natural beauty!

Heraion which was called Eschatiotis or Gorgopis in antiquity. In the region of the Lake, which has been inhabited at least since 3.000 BC, settlements of the Proto-Hellenic I Period and Proto-Hellenic II Period were discovered. Only a few kilometers west of the Lake, lies the cape of Heraion, also known as Melagavi. One of the oldest stone-built lighthouses still operating is located at this spot, as well as the ruins of the ancient settlement and of the famous Sanctuary of Hera. The Heraion of Perachora consists of two sections and for this reason, until quite recently, it was believed that they were two sanctuaries - one dedicated to Acraea Hera (i.e., on the edge of the land) and the other one dedicated to Limenia Hera (i.e., of the port). Recent excavations have led the researchers to the conclusion that there was only one sanctuary, the one of Acraea – Limenia Hera.
