Thermopiles

Thermopiles is a community between the mountain of Kallidromo and Maliakos bay, built near the coastal strait of the ancient times (Πύλαι - Gates) bearing the same name. The straits of Thermopylae were a theatre of major military operations and became famous because of the battle between Greeks and Persians which took place in 480 B.C. Nowadays, the region has turned to a plain. Thermopiles is located 18 km SE of Lamia.
