In perfect harmony with history and nature

Extremadura's spa resorts offer a lot more than just remedies for certain conditions. They have become true oasis of wellness; places where you can relax and enjoy nature, culture and gastronomy.

On your getaway to Extremadura, turn off your mobile phone, forget your routine and feel the warm embrace of thermal waters that have alleviated fatigue since Roman times.

With specialised service, great heritage including Roman remains and waters declared public utilities, Extremadura's thermal sites are an excellent option for a little self-care and relaxation. In perfect harmony with history and nature.

Let’s have a look through Extremadura’s thermal centres from north to south without veering to far from the Vía de la Plata, the Roman road that was the spine of the territory in the era of Hispania.

 

Balneario de Baños de Montemayor

The Romans took full advantage of thermal waters of the Baths of Montemayor and turned the Valley of Ambroz into an oasis right on the Vía de la Plata. Today we can find a modern spa that has conserved the Roman baths, an ideal placed to rest and enjoy the baths between visits to monuments and the routes in the local area.

The heritage of the Baños de Montemayor encompasses a number of sections of the old road.
