The hot water springs are the reason to Come

The springs are public for one section and this is that one. Another area has private springs and a large relaxing area with an outdoor pool and lounging quarters. These springs have been used since before Roman era.

Not big but sit on it

The springs are not very large for the public section. They maybe could hold around 100 people in a squeeze. They are slippery on the rocks and the ridges are formed by the minerals accumulating over years to form the pattern. The home in the background was closed and do not know what it was used for. Legend says that the springs are a place where wizards and witches frequented and placed spells on people. This is the cause of the sulphur odor and people believed that was satanic.
