This spa that reminds us of a famous brand of mineral water is located in the Serranía de Cuenca, in the municipality of Beteta. Its origins are legendary, since it is said that a shepherd saw how part of his flock drank water in this place and the goats healed their diseases.

A fact that would reach the ears of Carlos III, who ordered the construction of the Solán de Cabras spa in 1755. Since then, thousands and thousands of travelers have passed through here who have taken advantage of the weak mineralization of its waters to heal themselves from digestive, kidney or rheumatic problems.

A place name east of Alhama that we find in many other places in the Hispanic geography, and it is always related to the presence of hot springs, since it is an Arabic word that means “hot water”.

In this case, the spa has been in operation since 1863 and there users take advantage of waters with analgesic and sedative capacity, which makes them ideal for nerve, stress or anxiety treatments.
