For a change of pace, take a soak in these attractively designed, open-air thermal pools amid pine woods 5km southwest of the town centre. You spend up to 10 minutes each in five hot pools, dipping in cold pools in between. The pools are stone-lined and the waters (37 to 41ºC) are particularly therapeutic for the joints and muscles.

You can rent swimming costumes (€1.40), flip-flops (€1.80) and towels (€2.20) if you don't have your own.
