The thermal waters rise from the left bank of the tagus river at a temperature of 30âș c and contain sodium chloride, calcium carbonate and magnesium sulfate. The romans are known to have taken advantage of the health benefits of these waters, which have been available for centuries to local people. The baths were inaugurated in 1778 and were presided over by king carlos iii and in the summer of 1798 they were visited by minister don melchor gaspar de jovellanos. The spa's inauguration served as a catalyst for the local economy and the area assumed the role of cultural centre and a place where celebrations were held and plays performed.
