Seven Springs (Epta Piges)
To fall in love with Rhodes once and forever you must visit this absolutely charming place – the Seven Springs or in Greek Epta Piges. It is only 27 km from the Town of Rhodes, but somehow you feel there far from loud civilization. Surrounded by tall pine trees the Seven Springs with their cool, transparent water attract not only people tired from the hot weather and unpredictable stock exchange market but also local ducks and peacocks.
The place is ideal for spending time with children. Nature here is opulent. Young curious explores may find different birds, crabs, turtles around the lake or see in the transparent waters rare gizani fish and unusual eels.
From magical Seven Springs stroll dawn to the beautiful man-made lake. An artist who was long asleep inside you will be inevitably waken up by the picturesque landscapes around. To complete the experience, you may swim in refreshing, crystalline waters of the lake.
If you feel ready for the adventure instead of taking the walking path to the lake you can go through a tunnel. 186 m long tunnel brings water from the Seven Springs to the lake. It was built in 1931 by the Italians. The tunnel is quite narrow and dark so if you always wanted to feel yourself like the prisoner who is trying to escape from the Tower of London, that is the chance for you to do it.
