History

Archaeological remains of the old Roman thermal baths were discovered during building work on the current thermal spa. In 1773 the villagers built a small bath house that remained active until the first half of the 20th century. In 1962 Manuel Yáñez took over its operation, in exchange for providing electricity to the area. In 1991 the waters became municipal property, and work began on the project for the thermal baths, opened in 2002, designed by the architect María Jesús Castelo.

The thermal spa hotel is on the route of the old Roman Way XVIII or Via Nova, which connected the Augustinian cities of Braga and Astorga, and now links the mountain range of Xurés with the Portuguese hills of Gerês. On foot, visitors can go on cultural hikes, visit the Roman mansion of Aquis Originis and one of the most important collections of milestones in Europe in Portela do Home.

In the neighbouring municipality of Bande you can admire the Roman camp of Aquis Querquennis and the church of Santa Comba, one of the few Visigothic churches in Spain.

Lobios is in the heart of the Xurés Natural Park. Visitors can take various tourist routes through this protected area, dominated by numerous river courses that accompany the river Limia. The mountains have a characteristic flora and fauna, including wolves, roe deer, mountain goats, the so-called Galician pony, golden eagles, and vipers…

Lobios is just 6 km from Portugal, very close to the Portuguese town of Gerês, centre of the Peneda Gerês National Park. As well as enjoying the local natural sights, visitors can see historical villages such as Ponte da Barca, Ponte da Lima or Arcos de Valdevez. Ponte da Lima is a very representative town of the Minho region, with a picturesque market, magnificent palaces and stately mansions.
