Paralia Thermis - Sarlitza Palace ....But hot mineral baths that have healing properties don't grow on trees so maybe someone with lots of money will take pity on the building and the people who live in Thermi and restore it to its former glory. In the meantime it is a tourist attraction, like a half sunken ship on a beach, or the empty skyscrapers of Detroit, or Chernoble. And the restaurants on the waterfront in Thermi are among the best, and the Monastery of Agios Raphael is known for its miracles. So come around sunset for a visit, walk around the building, and maybe say a prayer to the local Saints, Raphael, Nicholas and Irini, for the Salitza Pallas Hotel and then have dinner. If enough people do it who knows? Note the ancient columns at the entrance to the baths. Inside is the column that is featured in the iconic photo of an ancient column in the baths which used to be on the old tourist posters for Lesvos. Of course with all the crap in the water who wants to even go down there to see it? Such respect for antiquities. Waste not want not. Hot therapuetic spring water is gushing from these pipes and flowing into the ruins. If the water has such healing properties why don't they bottle it? Or at least turn it off until they find enough bottles.
