One of our stops along the Vía de la Plata is in Cáceres. Here we will cross Baños de Montemayor, a municipality and town with great points of interest such as the Church of Santa María. However, this place is best known for the Baños de Montemayor Spa, whose origins date back to Roman times and whose constant attention has made this building an Asset of Cultural Interest since 1995.
Interest in this spa is widespread, especially after learning that its waters come from underground and are sulphate water, with a temperature of 43ºC. Such is the quality of these waters that they are recommended for those who require rheumatological treatments, arthrosis, arthritis or respiratory disorders. In addition to all this, they are also ideal for pilgrims who want to take a break and enjoy these waters with toning and beautifying properties of the skin.
It is a completely natural water that comes from two springs very close to each other. The use of these waters goes back many centuries, exactly to the 2nd century BC, when the waters were already flowing and their use was purely therapeutic. With the passing of time, it was decided to transform the aquatic lagoon into a Roman spa.
There are many points that indicate that this spa has Roman origins, not only because of writings or even Roman vestiges found in 1894. The spa itself has a Roman thermal bath, which is still available in the facilities, maintaining its original essence as well as allowing visitors to get to know part of the past of this place.
Inside there are three types of services, giving way to options focused on health, relaxation or even exclusive beauty treatments. A quiet stay for all those pilgrims who want to enjoy a more relaxed experience on their way. Visiting hours are scheduled from Monday to Sunday from 9:00 to 14:00 and 18:00 to 21:00. All to enjoy the incredible benefits of this place.
