Loutra Pozar, Aridaia, Pella
At the foot of Kaimaktsalan, just 13 km from Aridaia and 25 from Edessa, lie the Pozar Thermal Baths. Huge plane trees, the river that descends to the gorge and the sound of the water that travels visitors, make up the fairytale setting of Pozar Loutra.
The complex's facilities are organized in a small spa town with hotels, restaurants, swimming pools and changing rooms, offering the visitor a high standard of service. The thermal springs of Pozar Loutra springs at an altitude of 390 meters. They are created by rainwater, which penetrates deep into the ground, is heated there, then rises higher and gradually enriched with metals and other elements. The hot springs of Pozar Baths have a constant temperature of 37 ° C while the temperature of other natural sources can reach up to 60 ° C.
