About Montbui Thermal Town

This appeal is complemented by other attractions which make the spa town a cultural, sportive, nature and tourist resort. Its good geographical situation, a mild climate and waters that gush out at 74º C, one of the highest temperatures in Europe – has shaped the history and life of this town with a population of more than 17,000 inhabitants.
If we take a short walk through the characteristic streets of the old town centre, we can follow the historical thermal itinerary in which we will come across the ancient roman baths, the symbolic Font del Lleó (Lion Spring), the communal washing houses which are supplied with hot spring water, the parish church of Santa Maria and the spa hotels.
The itinerary also includes a visit to the museum Thermalia and the traditional house-museum of the Delgers. Continuing on our way and just outside the old town centre we can admire the unusual Romanic bridge and the chapel of Remei.

The Font del Lleó (Lion Spring) is the most well-known hot spring in Caldes de Montbui. It is situated in the square which bears its name, in the middle of the old town centre. The water emerges at a temperature of 74º C, one of the highest in Europe. The Font del Lleó was built in 1581 and was renovated in 1822. In spite of the reforms, the gargoyle and the base wall have been preserved over the years..
The spring we can admire today dates from 1927, the year in which it was restored and improved by Manuel Raspall, who gave a “noucentist” character to the present monument, with the lion which gives the spring its present name, and has become the symbol of the town.
The water is then redirected to the “safareigs públics” (communal washing houses), constructed in the 19th century and still in use to this very day.
As well as testing the powerful effect of the thermal waters for themsleves, visitors have the chance to break with everyday routine, get fit, become acquainted with an area of total peace and tranquillity and restore their necessary energy. Caldes de Montbui is the ideal setting for refocusing, while enjoying the sensations offered by its mineromedicinal waters, its history, culture, and nature..
The expansion of spa activities started in the second half of the 19th century and continued to its present level. In that time a series of comfortable buildings were constructed in the style of those in prestigious Europoean spa centres, designed not only to take advantage of curative effects of the waters but also to offer a place for recreation and rest to their guests.
All of these establishments have been modernised whilst maintaining their characteristic modernist features. Consequently, there are now a considerable number of establishments open to the public, helping Caldes de Montbui to keep its position as the leading spa resort in Catalonia.
