The Region of Murcia region

Fortuna


Fortuna is a spa town to the northeast of Murcia near the border of the province. Famous for its hot springs which were greatly appreciated by the Romans, Fortuna is fast becoming popular once again as the town becomes an important centre for hydrotherapy, beauty treatments and other therapies associated with the natural hot mineral water. Fortuna is a typical Spanish town, as yet unexploited, with peaceful streets and a white church with a curious tower. For country lovers, to the south of Fortuna, there is a large lake, enclosed in a nature preservation area and surrounded by woods, ideal for walking or fishing.
These waters contain several elements and minerals that are often touted as a cure-all with health giving qualities and mysterious powers. Having said that the best thing about it, I think, is in the manner in which mother nature has created environmentally friendly warm water system, and they're therapeutic. Thousands of people flock to these springs in order to alleviate medical conditions namely, for rheumatism and breathing disorders and we have one just up the road, in Fortuna.
The Romans
Fortuna, a town not too far from Murcia, was home to a large Roman community, who made the most of the running hot water and used natural thermal springs to create their luxury baths. Most Roman baths and or buildings, were heated via hot furnaces, by burning wood, placed under the floors, leaving sufficient space for hot air to circulate in open areas, giving them a controllable heating system. However, in the baths to be found in Fortuna, the earth already provided warm and therapeutic water. No wonder the Romans hung around for a few centuries…

Tourism in Fortuna
