At the occasion of the Thermal Heritage Day, held in Budapest (Hotel Gellert) last 12.10.2018, was presented the book “Thermal Tourism and Spa Heritage in Europe. The case of EHTTA”, written by Mario Crecente and Paul Simons (Vice President and President of the EHTTA Scientific Committee, respectively) with the support of the archaeologist Silvia G. Soutelo.
