Thermal Bath

This spa exists since the 14th century and was constructed close to a monastery. Hidden on a tree-rich steep mountainside and surrounded by multiple waterfalls. Among the ruins there are some treatment tanks and a stepped pool where thermal water is still present. The thermal waters should have a temperature of around 25 degrees. The baths were destined for the poor, crippled and leprosy patients who had little money to be able to afford treatment. Diving in its waters was good for arthritic pains, paralysis, and leg sores. The spa is abandoned for more than over 100 years now.
