This ancient stone building has been restored with love and respect for its

the thermal springs with which this area is so richly endowed.
Not far from here there is the one-story building in which Casa Pina is located.
Surrounding the entire complex you will find a beautiful lawn, divided by narrow
stone pathways that cut across the greenery, and ornamented with urns
overflowing with red geraniums. On this lawn, here and there, you will find on

Available for use by all the guests, you will find a barbecue and a wood-burning
oven, playground equipment for the children, and 3000 square meters (about 32000

connection and stereo system. In this room, the proprietors offer complimentary

churches and ancient fortifications.
