Long time ago, in the Roman times ...
... Syllas the Roman General, passing by Edipsos has left his marks all over the
place. It is said that his aching legs were cured in the healing waters of Edipsos. We now
remember him by looking at the "Caves" which during the Roman Era were used as
baths and remain untouched by the passing years. This period is historically pictured with
the most intense colors.
The historian, Plutarch, notes "... the village of
Edipsos on the island of Evia is a place for pleasure and entertainment, full of elegant
buildings and entertainment centers providing luxurious stays".
During the Roman Era, Edipsos is a cosmopolitan center, were people come to have bath therapy in the healing waters and also entertain and enjoy themselves.
It's a remote period of time for which the half buried marble columns recount the actions and deeds of Emperor Adrianos, Marcus Aurelius and charm of Julia Domna which appears irresistible in her statue. Both mortals and immortals became blissful when enjoying the beauties of the place and the pleasures of its well-organize society. Times came and went.
In the Middle Ages, lords passed through and after them came Constantine the Great and Theodosius each in turn seeking both pleasure and cure.
For 3,000 years the history keeps on and pictures of the past, touch and move the ones who study it.
In the years after the First World War, Edipsos flourished once more. It is the period when spas became internationally popular. In the hotel lounges one could meet international personalities of that time, famous actors, artists, poets, writers, statemen, politician and successful entrepreneurs and ship owners. You could get a glimpse of Prince Edward and Mrs. Simpson secluding themselves from the public eye and Prime Minister Eleftherios Venizelos enjoying a break. In this cosmopolitan
environment the picturesque, inhabitants lived alongside enjoying their lives to the full
in the small taverns and coffee shops.
Later Edipsos hospitates the shipping magnet Aristotle Onasis, Omar Sharif, the great opera singer Maria Callas, Winston Churchill and the glamorous Greta Garbo. Chefs catered for the most delicate palates in the luxurious hotel restaurants.
In the recent years, many writers and poets are inspired by Edipsos.
