Saint Honore les bains
The Thermal Spa
Romans, hydrotherapy enthusiasts built roman baths in Saint-Honoré-les-Bains from 14 A.D to 37 A.D under the reign of Tibère .
The current thermal baths were inaugurated in july 1855. The waters were certified of public interest april 28th 1860. A casino and hôtels are erected between 1863 and 1870.
The waters that emerge naturally there come from rain water infiltrated 30kms away from the baths , on Mount Beuvray’s slopes, in granitic cracks that reach a depth of 2 500 m through zones with very high temperatures . They acquire there mineral elements that confer them therapeutic virtues.
The three springs in activity today have sulfurated and chlorurated waters with traces of arsenic and quite a bit of silica.
Those waters are particularly indicated in treating osteoarthritis and rheumatisms and also in treating bronchial afflictions .
The treatments dispensed here apply both to adults and children presenting respiratory fragility , in particular Asthma.
