There are two major causes for hot water sources. One is volcanic activity. The other is rocks which are under pressure (e.g. due to tectonic activity). This area has both, although the last active volcanic activity dates from a while ago (Miocene), I guess it is linked to rocks under pressure due to the tectonic activity. Remember that the last huge earthquake on the island dates from less than 100 year ago.

Here you can find one of the famous warm water sources of the region. It has been used for centuries. Although there is an indication that you shouldn’t fill bottles with this water (because it contains quite some minerals that are not so good for your body if you drink it in great quantities) many people do and are convinced of its healing effects. Near the source you will find a new Spa. And you will also see some ruins which were part of the old spa.
