Springs of Santa Barbara

Trademark of Drama, the Springs of Santa Barbara featured in recent years among the 60 best parks in Europe.

This is a unique wetland, a beautiful recreation area about 60 acres in the heart of the city, where often Drama enjoying their walk through exquisitely shaped trails that pass by wooden bridges.

The dominant element is water! Lakes, rivers and waterfalls create the perfect ... feng shui, but the best "home" for fish, ducks, geese and swans. Platania give dense shade, but in rare birds nest. In the center of the park is a restaurant, Nissaki.

Apart from the given natural beauty, interesting and legend accompanying sources. In the Ottoman era, therefore, the rulers wanted to demolish the church of St. Barbara in place to build a mosque. The church, however, was covered by water and could not approach her or even see her. The people saw this miracle and then leave each year in the calm waters of Lake improvised boats with candles, making the whole park really shines!

In the northern part is the Information Center Visitor watched one space is the starting point for any visitor Drama and essentially summarizes what we've seen in the entire county.

Outside the park are the famous anymore Tobacco warehouses, which are reflected in its waters and constitute one of the most photographed landmarks. The City has purchased one of the buildings to turn it into a cultural center, while another one is about to become a hotel.
