The area was named after its seven natural springs. Their water gushes into a creek that further down feeds a small man-made lake. Its waters provide a natural habitat to tortoises, eels, crabs and a rare fish species called "Gizani" that lives exclusively in the creeks of Rhodes. Epta Piges is a marvelous place that confirms Rhodes' fame as the "emerald of the Mediterranean" and the "secret corner of Paradise". The combination of crystal-clear waters with pine and plate trees creates a peaceful scenery, offering the visitor relaxing moments.

The area is under the authority of the municipality of Archangelos.
