The three urban routes show how Caldes has always been a welcoming land to those seeking comfort and wellbeing.
The Camp dels Ninots route provides us with a unique image of what life was like 3.1 million years ago. If we take the “Caldes in Wartime (1936-1945)” route, we can see how the presence of refugees, war wounded, Italian sailors and Nazi spies, and their interaction with locals, famous for their hospitality, led to all kinds of personal relations and memories that live on today.
And the heritage route shows us how Caldes has developed over the centuries with thermal water as one of its main symbols of identity. The Romans, who knew about the mineral medicinal properties of these waters, which reach a temperature of 60ºC, settled in this place and called it Aquae Calidae.
