Bottled water from the KORPI source. This water comes from the town of Korpi, approx. 12km from Palairos. This village is known as a health resort for kidney patients. Don’t expect a health resort as we know them. Wooden barracks serve as sleeping areas with toilets and washing facilities and a cup or mug. People drink the water from the source all day long.
