This is the thermal, mineral water area of the city. The water temperature is between 60 and 67 degrees Celsius. It was once used by the Romans. The entrance fee is 3 euros and you can buy your ticket at the Tourist Office, located at Rua Burgas, 16. It's to the right of the baths.
My stay in the Baths of Outariz was pretty special because it meant that I could revisit a Japanese onsen. The Japanese style is very accomplished, to the point that the logo is used in Japan to mark thermal areas on maps. There are also many Japanese allegories in the decoration and even transcribed Japanese posters. Yes, you do have to wear a bathing suit.
Built in the tenth century by order of Al-Hakam II of the Umayyad Alcázar, these baths are similar to Roman baths, consisting of rooms of varying temperature, illuminated by vaulted skylight shaped stars. These baths offer a surprising and very interesting trip.
This is one of the springs in Ourense. I was just walking my dog when I saw the nighttime lights on the Miño River with an access by footbridge to the hot springs at the bottom of Outariz. I put my camera above the baths so it would be protected. I hope you like the photo. The baths are unbeatable, such a relaxing experience.
The perfect end to a relaxing week beautifull island and people beautifull salon and service . One very relaxed mother and davghter highly recommend the massage duo - not to mention the champagne and chocolate!!!
These pools are one of the free swimming areas on the right bank of the River Miño, integrated into the Ourense Thermal path. To get here, it's best to take the train from the hot springs (0.75€). The walk without the train is 6 or 7 kilometres. The water temperature goes from 65° to 72°C , and the waters have therapeutic properties, and are weakly mineralized with alkaline, fluoride and silicate. The pools are well delineated by rocks, forming a natural swimming pool in an environment surrounded by greenery and the Minho River. There is a small house with changing rooms.
Next to the spa there are some pools owned by the village of Arnedillo and open to the public. If you go to the area while discovering La Rioja, do no miss out on it! The best is to go at night. The water is at about 36ºC. A must!
Near Mondrón, visit the Baths of Vilo (Baños de Vilo), whose sulphurous water source with healing properties was known to the Romans. The smell is unpleasant and, though it seems odd, people still drink these waters because, they say, it's good for skin problems.
