Driving past Astros and turning left at a fork takes you to a spring, whose water is reputed to alleviate rheumatism and other ailments.
The Loutra (baths) of the village of Irea near ancient Irea and the municipality by the same name has become an important healing centre. Hot springs with sulphurous waters here have been known to treat ailments like rheumatism, arthritis, liver problems, circulatory ailments, nervous-system disorders, gynaecological problems and many others.
There is also a hydrotherapeutic centre at the village open from mid june to mid October, with luxury-level baths and cabins, including hydromassage facilities (tel. +30 27970 25000). To reach the area head there from Dimitsana and Ilia through the Pyrgos-Tripoli highway, via Ladonas bridge near Charitzinou. You will find the village 12 kilometers southwest of Paloumba.
