Kókkini Porta Rossa


ON OUR MAP:   67 

Pine trees, little bridges and trickling streams. "Epta Piges" (Seven Springs) are 30 km from Rhodes Town, if you drive on the west side of the island, or 50, if you drive there over the mountains.

You can wander around the maize of footpaths searching out the source of each of the seven springs. 

Lying across the entry road, a green lake with turquoise waters nestles in a pine clad gorge. 

Most visitors walk to it through the 610ft (186m) long tunnel, carrying the stream that flows into the lake. The tunel is not recommended for the claustrophobic ones, who may follow the alternate route. A sign posted footpath leads to the lake from the main site. 

Peacocks wander the site too and, if they are not to be seen, their penetrating cry is unlikely to pass unnoticed.
