Vouliagmeni lake

Vouliagmeni lake

Things to do - general

Also known as Vouliagemi lagoon and Heraion Lake, the lake is a picturesque area surrounded by many cafes and tavernas, it is located 3.5 kms from Ancient Heraion.

During the ancient times the lake was also called Lake Eschatiotis.

In 1962 the international film The 300 Spartans staring Richard Egan with Sir Ralph Richardson and Diane Baker was filmed around this salt water lake, as the rocky geography of the present Vouliagmeni shoreline is more in keeping with ancient Thermopylae than the actual present historical site.

The location is great for visitors to have a refreshing drink, a cool swim, good food and exploring Ancient Heraion.
