Thermal water is one of the most highly appreciated natural resources in the Principality of Andorra. There are more than 35 natural springs in the country. These mineral waters flow up to the surface at high temperatures, rich in medicinal properties. Reaching temperatures of up to 70°C, these are amongst the hottest springs in the Pyrenean region. Containing sodium and sulphur, along with other minerals, and enriched by thermal plankton, the spa’s water has analgesic, healing, decongestant and anti-allergy effects. The wealth on mineral elements of Escaldes-Engordany's water can be seen in its chemical composition:

Water at different temperatures provides real toning for the body. However, beyond its therapeutic properties, Caldea’s thermal water will help you recover your vitality and enjoy a true experience of escapism.
Caldea capitalises on all the properties of the thermal waters from Escaldes-Engordany, which are part of the warmest springs in the Pyrenees (70ºC).
The sodic and sulphurous thermal waters of Andorra are oily like thermal plankton and, although they have therapeutic properties, the way Caldea uses the richness of the region’s waters is guided by a philosophy that differs from the ones of traditional spas.
Bathing in thermal waters was originally practised for therapeutic purposes since these waters have analgesic, healing, decongestant and anti-allergic effects. At Caldea these therapeutic effects are accompanied by a playful experience that provides an immediate sensation of wellbeing. This is an innovative concept that promotes bathing in thermal waters for the purpose of leisure and which, since its inauguration in 1994, has broken away from the concept of traditional spas which are oriented towards therapy.
Caldea’s thermal waters have earned the Aquatermalcert certification of excellence (ATC). After an exhaustive analytical process, which included a diagnostic audit and various verification audits, a team of experts with technical training concluded that the water used in both Caldea and Inúu retains all the properties of the thermal source.
