HOT SPRING & THERMAL BATH
The other end of the lake is a bed of new greenery bringing nature, colour and birdlife to immerse yourself in. The water has receded and exposed the ancient hot spring with its balmy hot water bubbling up to the surface, it’s an amazing natural wonder and free! These mineral-rich waters have gathered naturally into this pool and have also been channelled up to the paid baths above “Banos de Zujar”. Bathing in either of these provide therapeutic and medicinal benefits—and some good old-fashioned relaxation. The Banos de Zujar is very authentic and costs €2.50 for a swim.
