See below some more information about the thermal pools, circuits, massages and other spa amenities:


Thermal Circuit

This therapy consists in immersing the body for short periods of time in thermal water pools of different temperatures, going from hot to cold. The cycle starts with a pool at 105.8F, followed by other at 75.2F, then with one at 98.6F and finally with one at 87.8F.




Temperature changes improve blood circulation because the body does what is known as vascular gymnastics: the heat dilates blood vessels and the cold contracts them.

Relax all the body muscles, eliminating stress.

It’s ideal for people suffering of sciatic nerve pains, tendinitis, arthritis, muscle pains, insomnia problems, or is recovering after an accident or operation.


All steam baths are private. You can access by yourself, with your husband/wife, relatives or friends. We have different sizes and temperatures. They have a dressing area, a cold water shower and a steam bath that works with 100% natural spring water, drawn directly from our wells.



Eliminate toxins and impurities from skin.

Relieve cold symptoms, clearing the airways.



Our 12 pools have 100% natural hot springs and are distributed in two areas. They vary in size, shape and water temperature. They are ideal for relaxing or having a pleasant family day.

On weekdays, there are 5 to 7 pools open.
