Carratraca, known as the Diamond of Malaga, has been famous for its sulphur water spas
since Roman times. In its heyday in the 19th century, when taking the waters was the height of fashionable travel, this spa attracted such famous visitors as Lord Byron and Empress Marie Eugenie, wife of Napoleon III. The baths are open from June 15th - October 15th every year. A complete day's treatment costs around 120 euros.
Today the spa at Carratraca has been renovated and world class facilities await visitors to the area. For more information, visit our page about the Spa at Carratraca.
