Ourense can not be understood without water: that of its rivers and streams, that of rain, that of the fountains in its Old Town and especially its thermal mineral medicinal waters. Under the city there is an ocean formed in the depths of the earth, in aquifers more than 1 km in depth, and which sprouts to the surface with a flow of between 3 and 4 million litres a day, one of the highest in Europe.
The tradition of thermal baths accompanies the city from its origins, and is still practiced in the many facilities available: historical thermal baths, pools in the middle of nature, small spas inspired by the Far East …
