Ourense thermal spa baths
Ourense thermal baths. Ourense is the Capital of Galicia. Fancy taking a dip in a large open-air thermal bath, daytime or nightime, any time of year, in water with a temperature of over 40 degrees centigrade, and right beside the Miño river.
All this can be experienced in Ourense, a city with a hidden underground ocean with five natural spring spa areas to enjoy for free, and where you can even see the mineral and medicinal waters bubbling out of the rock. A total bonus for your health and wellbeing.
You can also visit private Japanese-style spa centres (like Zen temples) and relax with seaweed- and chocolate-based beauty treatments. Wellness venues these days are very popular.
And right in the historic centre, make time for a visit to the Fuente de las Burgas spring, where mineral and medicinal waters bubble up to the surface at a temperature of 67 degrees centigrade, and where the ancient Romans dedicated an altar to the water nymphs.
