If you mention Carratraca, most people will think of Carratraca Spa, which is a key part of the town’s collection of historic landmarks. It is considered one of Andalusia’s most iconic spas and has been rated one of the best in Europe. The spa provides an insight into the customs and social life of the bourgeoisie, as well as public health and charitable works in the 19th century. It also has its place in the history of medicine. Today, it preserves the typical characteristics of this kind of building, with a central vestibule, a gallery of baths in a chamber on one side and the shared baths on the other side.
