These are the only hot pools in the town proper. Built as a community project in 1928, they are named for the Virgin Mary, who is said to have come here to dip her own feet. One bath is cold, another warm and a third reaches an intense 42°C (118°F).

Check out the ojo del agua , where the water, heated by the volcano, gushes from the earth at a scorching 50°C (122°F).
