Kaiafas Thermal Baths
A fairytale scenery
A landscape of unparalleled aesthetics and unsurpassed beauty,
the area of Caiaphas, is located within the boundaries of the Municipality of Zacharo and is 27 km from Pyrgos and 25 km from ancient Olympia.
The unique ecosystem of its kind impresses with its grandeur and includes the Caiaphas Baths, the homonymous lake, the pine forest of Strofilia and the mountain Lapitha known from mythology at the root of which are the two caves. The composition is completed by the beach of Kaifas with the strong advantage of the sandy coast 6 km long and the islet of Agia Aikaterini with the homonymous church.
Although the area is said to have taken its name from the biblical figure, the high priest of Judea Kaiafas, it most likely came from the Nymph Kaliafeia who lived in the cave of the Angyrid Nymphs, along with Pigaea and Iasi, also nymphs.
