  • Spa a beautiful place and very well cared for, with warm waters and stunning scenery. The venue offers a place to change clothes and a picnique location. Take bath towels because they are not all the agencies it offers. And some agency can't be parked right next to the spa entrance. You will have to make a good walk more the view compensates.

  • There are 7 thermal water wells connected through small waterfalls. On the shores there are beautiful papyri in their green and yellow tones contrasting with the water and the blue sky that almost never clouds. With temperatures around 32 ° C, the waters relax our body. The best is to take the morning tour to enjoy the sun that will warm up, as leaving a well for the other just a bathing suit or bikini is quite cold due to altitude. Bring water and snacks to enjoy and not starve.
