The building where you can get your thermal bath today was built in 1815 (Ottoman times) It was those days very in faction to be able to get an individual bathroom.
The traditional pools (ladies & gentlemen separately) stopped to be used in 1960 but you can still visit them just behind the "modern" baths. It is a typical Byzantine times construction of the 12th c AD where lots of ancient marbles have been used. Ancient columns support the vaults in both pools
The big building -abandoned 30 years now - next to the thermal Baths used to be a "spa hotel". It was build at the end of the 19th c. During the First World War when Lesvos was occupied by the Greek army the Turk owner, as a good businessman, has sold it to the local Greek medicine union. The owners nowadays are therefore the big Doctors and Pharmacists union based on Athens. The Municipality of Thermi presses them to do something with it or to give it to the municipality.
