With Mount Ida on one side and the ancient city of Alexandria Troas on one side, the miraculous water of the Alexandria Troas Thermal Hotel, which rests on the forest on one back and the unique sea of the North Aegean on the other, continues to heal for centuries.
Located within the borders of Körüktaşı village in Çanakkale's Ezine district, the facility continues to host its subjects with its renewed face.
The treatment center, which is said to have healed the veterans of the Troas region in ancient times, Alexander the Great and his soldiers, and the veterans of Suleiman the Magnificent in the Ottoman period, was also recorded as the region where Saint Paul and his friends, one of the apostles of Jesus, lived.
The region where the Alexandria Troas Thermal Hotel is located, located in the middle of the baths of the Alexandria Troas City, founded by Antigonos Monophtalmos I, one of the commanders of Alexander the Great, has witnessed many civilizations.
The thermal water, with a temperature of 73 degrees, has been the subject of many articles with its iron, calcium and other mineral values. Various analyzes were carried out in independent laboratories abroad at different times.
Thermal water has been proven to be effective in rheumatic diseases, skin diseases such as psoriasis and eczema, respiratory tract and lung diseases, neuritis, gynecological diseases, nerve and muscle fatigue, lymph adenopathy in young children, joint calcification and some bone tuberculosis, and post-operative ailments. Thus, thermal water has been the first choice of those seeking healing for centuries.
"Water that raises the dead"
The water of the hot spring is popularly known as "the water that resurrects the dead" because it is rumored that Saint Paul, one of the apostles of Jesus, resurrected a dying patient by putting them into these waters and showed the miracle of Jesus.
