Thermal Resorts of Portugal

In Portugal, there are dozens of thermal springs, on the basis of many of which modern balneological complexes for the prevention and treatment of various diseases have been erected.

A Brief History of the Portuguese Thermal Resorts Many of the mineral springs in what is now Portugal were known several thousand years ago.

The first buildings were Roman baths, where the main procedure was swimming in the pools with hot water.

However, on the streets, squares, and in resort towns on the beaches, almost until the morning many locals and thousands of tourists from Europe walk around, who decided to say goodbye to the outgoing year on the western end of the continent. Municipalities are specially prepared – they spare no money on decorations and entertainment. Hours from ten in the evening concerts and various events begin.

But tourists who are not familiar with local customs often remain dissatisfied: they complain about shops that are closing early, museums that do not work on holidays, and the inability to get to the chosen restaurant. In order not to be in a similar situation, prepare for the trip. Continue reading
