Cauquenes Hot Springs
This is one of the oldest thermal centers in Chile, with facilities constructed out of pine wood during the 19th century, featuring genuine pavilions made in 1876. This is why today, Cauquenes Hot Springs are a real historical and archaeological relic. The original design was restored a couple of years by retaining the gothic style and its gorgeous carrara marble bathtubs that are more than two centuries old. Also, the spaish ceramic floors have remained intact until today.
Rugged and forested terrains encircle the hot springs complex. Some of the original settlers inhabited the area during the pre Colombian era. Later on, in the 17th century, this land was controled and managed by the Jesuits.
