BATHS AND FOUNTAINS
THERMAL BATHS
On the road from Ancient Phigaleia to Andritsaina near Perivolia, is an archeological site that is a bit of a mystery. Unlike at other sites, the sign does not say what it is. On some maps it is described as a Doric temple but there are no Doric columns and no obvious temple entrance or altar.
     Instead, the impressive temple-like structure looks more like a cistern and a series of large stones with distinctive channels lead down the mountainside towards it. As well as channelling spring water, perhaps these stones - warmed by the sun - were also used to heat the water for bathing.
