Epta Piges, Kolympia

#2 of 10 in Nature in Rhodes
Walk through a tunnel leading to a dam and a small lake at Epta Piges. The seven small natural springs that serve as the namesake for this attraction bubble with fresh spring water and are marked by posts indicating their names. A nearby restaurant provides a place to relax and listen to the flowing water while you look for the oft-seen peacocks and watch the turtles and freshwater crabs swim freely. The paths around the springs may prove challenging for those with mobility issues, but accessible parking is readily available close to the site.

  • Its easy to see why the inhabitants of old were impressed - the place would have been almost magical. We today were not so easily impressed by water bubbling out of the ground.  more »
  • A total waste of time - avoid this! There were no seven springs - maybe they have dried out. There was an industrial built concrete dam and a tiny spring of water. There was also "a famous tunnel...  more »
  • The restaurant is value for money yet it is not the only reason one should visit the place. The visitor should find the small tunnel 100m away from the restaurant and walk through it. It is about 180-200 meters (max 5' walk) in a dark narrow corridor with a window (well entrance 5 meters above your head) in the middle of the tunnel (you cannot exit from there). Cold water is running on the floor so one must carry his shoes or wear slippers, although it is easier to walk barefoot. At the exit you find a very small lake and then you have to walk back to the parking and the restaurant (less than 10 minutes walk).The 7 springs are really small and you will find them right next to the restaurant. It is not something impressive. You can start a walk from the springs into the forest. Yet you should not expect to find something at the end of the path. The red signs lead nowhere (trust me I followed them to the end) and are just there to guide you into the forest. The path leads high on a heal with a view of the forest. Do not try to walk the path with slippers especially when you start climbing. Don't wear yourself out. If you want to have a refreshing walk in the woods of Rhodes (although with a ticket) I suggest the butterfly valey.
  • Beautiful natural spot and a real oasis out of the sun. This is a nice place to stop by while exploring the island. The taverna also shows promise of real good food although we only had drinks. They were great.
