The area of Seven Springs is located just 30 km away from the city of Rhodes. It is a landscape of unparalleled natural beauty that especially in summer and autumn turns into an earthly paradise - yes, you have heard this phrase hundreds of times but here things are... seriously. The name Seven Springs is not accidental as there are indeed seven springs there that create a dreamy scenery. These springs gush out water which then becomes a river and eventually ends up in a lake. In what way? With a tunnel that takes you to another dimension...
As soon as you arrive you will see a scenery full of pine and plane trees surrounding the river. A heavenly place that proves the power of nature as an artist. In the area, there is a shop to drink your coffee or your food and sit as long as you want to enjoy the natural landscape. You will enjoy it with your soul.
The tunnel that leads you to paradise
There, then, in the Seven Springs there is a tunnel that if you cross it, you literally enter another dimension. And you come out to a dreamy place, like something out of a fairy tale. After a while, a lake of turquoise colors appears in front of you. In essence, you walk following the course of the water to get there. The result definitely compensates you since you do not expect the beauty you will see in front of you. Besides, you will walk just 150 meters while in the center of the tunnel, there is a well that acts as a skylight and air duct.
This tunnel was built in the 20s by the Italians in order to facilitate the transfer of water to the artificial lake. The purpose of the Italians was the water supply of Kolymbia, which was an agricultural village that they built themselves. However, the village was abandoned after the war. So, this tunnel today leads to this magical landscape, the unique tourist resort in Rhodes.
The lake that will appear in front of you has a depth of 1 to 8 meters and has something unique in Rhodes. It is the only lake in Rhodes where you can swim while enjoying the green landscape of the area. In this lake lives the gizani, ie a rare species of fish that lives in Rhodes. In addition to these, geese, turtles, ducks, and peacocks will also accompany you.
Seven sources. A beautiful destination. A tunnel that deserves to be included in the list of different, strange, and at the same time beautiful places in Greece.
