Banos 2

I quizzed the man in Tourist Information Centre about the thermal baths. He said there were 2 hot springs and the water comes out at 43 degrees. It has been like that for 2000 years, when the Romans built their baths in the first century. The therapeutic treatments use the water containing sulphur and sodium (smell removed with natural ozone).

Today was back to cold and damp (only 4 degrees when I woke up at 8.00 am). Low cloud obliterated the view from my window. I poked around town for a bit and visited the Via de la Plata interpretive centre next to the Albergue. Lots of slides and display boards, but not a word in English!
