In Galicia, a land full of legends, literature and even folk songs dedicated to its waters, the spa tradition goes back a long, long time. The Romans, for example, who were no fools, not only made good use of its many springs to improve their health, but also knew how to enjoy themselves and relax. On the other hand, towns and villages of our region were dotted with those healing pools that provided our great-grandparents with such relief.
During the golden age of thermalism –from the 1850s to the early 1900s–, the Galician spas with the best pedigree became major social centres frequented by the crème de la crème.
Since a few years ago, spas are once more coming into their own.
