The inspiration for the creation of MountGrace SPA came from the marks that the old footpaths from Zagorohoria to Istanbul left behind.Zagorohoria was an important commercial center and during the Ottoman era the entry of Turkish troops took place only in exceptional cases. Since 1430 based on a special regime between the “Common Market of Zagori” and the Ottoman authorities a tax was paid in exchange for the partial autonomy of the region. Due to that the locals developed trade route from Ioannina to Constantinople.This resulted in influencing travel, the adoption of foreign habits and cultural elements, especially in art and architecture with the use of stone, to be common elements throughout the route.
With another common element, the water flowing from the rich springs of Mount Tymphi and the waters of the famous Baths of the City, joined in MountGrace SPA are all the performances and experiences of the wealthy 16th-century merchants who left the place, where he was accustomed to cooling and resting in the shady springs of his village and arriving in the city after a long journey, ending in one of his famous baths to rest and rejuvenate…So SPA is associated with relaxation and tranquility with the place of memory, while the primordial refreshing power of the liquid element is combined with marble, low light, flavors and aromas of the magic of the East, aiming at the well-being of the timeless traveler.
