Epta Piges

Epta Piges Review

Seven Springs, or Epta Piges, is a deeply shaded glen watered by mountain springs. They are made all the more photogenic thanks to the imported peacocks that flaunt their plumage in the woods around the springs. The waters are channeled through a 164-yard-long tunnel, which you can walk through, emerging at the edge of a cascading dam and a small man-made lake where you can swim. Here an enterprising local shepherd began serving simple fare in 1945, and his sideline turned into the busy waterside taverna ($) and tourist site of today. Despite its many visitors, Seven Springs' beauty remains unspoiled. To get here, turn right on the inland road near Kolymbia and follow signs.
