Since 1816, it has been one of the busiest thermal spas in Spain, due to the popularity of its waters throughout history. The building, made of stone, is a magnificent one-storey construction of more than 50 metres in length. In 1898, with the seizure of church properties of Mendizábal, it passed into the hands of the local council. Two years later the current building was inaugurated, the work of the architect Vázquez Gulías from Ourense. The thermal spa underwent a major refurbishment in 1993. It has modern facilities, although it maintains all the charm of a traditional thermal spa.
