Thermal spring water in Spain

by Dilek

The properties of thermal spring water can help rejuvenate sensitive or dehydrated skin. Thermal water is essentially rain water that has become rich in mineral salts, iodine and CO2 after voyaging underground for thousands of meters before resurfacing. Due to the fact that thermal water is free from bacteria, thermal water based products are recommended after surgery. Cosmetics from Avene and Vichy are thermal spring water based. Feel your worries melt away as you sink into Spain’s thermal spring waters, the best way to eliminate tension naturally. Thermal spring waters protect, purify, soothe, and hydrate the skin.

The largest thermal lake in Europe

Did you know that Spain is home to the second largest thermal lake in Europe? This natural hot spring is located in the province of Zaragoza (Aragon) in the northeast of Spain. The medicinal qualities of the water make “Termas Pallares Spa Resort” in Zaragoza the perfect place to enjoy a healthy, happy holiday. The thermal lake has a constant temperature of 32ºC so swimming is a delightful activity to engage in at any time of year. Additionally, the lake is surrounded by a beautiful landscaped garden which adds to the blissful ambience. In wintertime, a layer of mist descends upon the lake, creating an atmosphere of magical charm.

The architecturally stunning “Hotel Villa de Olmedo Spa” in Valladolid also offers thermal spring waters in addition to a fabulous gastronomic range. Guests at the recently renovated “Solar Hotel & Spa” in Cantabria can enjoy different styles of massage such as Swedish, deep tissue and hot stone as well as hydrotherapy treatments such as steam baths, foot baths and saunas. Each of the beautiful bedrooms has been decorated to perfection and the stunning architecture dates back to 1902.

“Hotel Las Caldas” invites you to experience the ultimate beauty treatment: the chocolate body wrap. Benefits include softer, smoother firmer skin with a luminous glow and an increased sense of happiness and well-being evoked by the scent of chocolate which stimulates the release of endorphins in the brain. Alternatively, indulge in a seaweed wrap; excellent for detoxifying your body and for giving the body a firmer, sleeker appearance. Seaweed wraps help to detoxify the body through sweating, which eliminates impurities from the body.

“Hotel Balneario Guitiriz” in Galicia offer their guests the rare opportunity to escape the monotonous daily routine. Besides enjoying the heavenly waters, you can engage in a little light exercise. It has been scientifically proven that just 15 minutes of exercise a day may add years to your life.
