Amarandos village is built on the Greek- Albanian borders, in a beautiful forest, at an altitude of about 1200 metres. The curative baths of Amarandos are located north of the village, at a distance of 5 km, at the basis of a big limestone rock. This natural resource is unique, because in its beautiful and healthy environment, steams gush and thus the baths were named “Amarandos Steam Baths ”. When Epirus was freed, Amarandos wasn’t included in the treaty that ceded territories, because Amarandos remained autonomous the whole time. The village was left to its inhabitants, who made use of the forest and the baths until the 2ndWorld War.
