  • The first mention of Jabalcuz Hot Spring dates back to 1594, by the end of the 17th century there was already a pond to take advantage of this hot spring.
  • The Town Hall built a path from the capital to Jabalcuz at the end of the 18th century, as well as widening the baths and building some houses nearby.
  • In 1846 it was declared of public utility, as it was sulphate-calcium and hypothermal water, suitable for gynecological and rheumatic problems.
