EHTTA welcomed Caldes de Montbui as a new active member at the occation of the Autumn General Assembly in Ourense (Spain).
Caldes de Montbui is a thermal village situated in the Vallès Oriental region, in the province of Barcelona. The municipality is located between the massifs of Sant Llorenç de Munt and Montseny, at the foot of the Farell mountain (805 m) and in the Riera valley of Caldes, which crosses the municipality from north to south.
Caldes is a zone of fractures and folding that results in the outbreak of hot springs, which sprout more than 74ºC, one of the highest in Europe.
Thanks to this natural resource, the municipality enjoys a privileged condition that has greatly influenced its urban development and historical, traditional and cultural legacy. The Roman origins have left numerous traces that shape our historical heritage, such as the spa tradition, Roman Baths and the settlement of the old town.
The thermal baths offer the main attractions of Caldes de Montbui, but others are also added: the flora and fauna of the surroundings, sports facilities, centers dedicated to culture, commercial movement, festivals and traditions.
