Muíño da Veiga

From 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.

Free access bathing area next to an old mill on the banks of river Minho.

NEWS: : temporally close due to the overflow in the river Miño. Check the current state of all the thermal baths in Ourense at this link.

Located practically in the bed of river Minho, it is a bathing area at the foot of a fully restored old wooden mill, from which it takes its name (muíño is Galician for “mill”). It is surrounded by a large green recreational area, which merges with the riparian vegetation of the site.

The bathing area is made up of five pools: a main pool of 200 m2, a second one of 130 m2 and two smaller ones of 55 and 45 m2, plus a pond of cold water for contrast baths. The water here is about 40 ° C.

There are changing rooms with lockers and toilets available for users. Admission is free, although there is limited capacity. To use these facilities, a bathing suit, flip flops and a towel are required, as well as a padlock if you would like to use the lockers.

The entire area is fed by several springs flowing at temperatures between 65 º and 72 ° C, some of the hottest in Spain. Muiño da Veiga’s waters are lightly mineralized, rich in alkalines, bicarbonate-sodium, fluoride and silicates.
