Overview

The city of Spa, also referred to as the ‘Pearl of the Ardennes’, is a beautiful Belgian town situated in a timbered valley, surrounded by numerous rivers and springs. The place is situated in the French-speaking part of Belgium, around 35 km south-east of Liege.
With a population of around 12,000 inhabitants, Spa is characterised by a mild temperate climate, with warm summers and cold winters.
Spa, renowned for its health-giving hot water springs, has been attracting visitors since as early as the fourteenth century. In fact, the name of this city has become synonymous with any place having a natural water source believed to possess healing properties or a hotel or resort offering hot water hydro-massage facilities. Till date, tourism is the mainstay of the economy here.

Overall Guide : The most famous natural water wells in this water-city of Belgium include the ‘Pouhon Pierre Le Grand’ and the ‘Pouhon Prince-de-Condé’. Apart from the springs, the Leopold II gallery, a late nineteenth century gallery which is beautifully decorated and illuminated... more with gas lanterns, is definitely worth a visit. The Place Royale, a famous park also known as ‘Le Parc de sept-heures’ by the locals, is frequented by most visitors for their evening walk. The Hotel Brittanique, which was the German headquarters during the World War I, has now been converted to a boarding school. Other places of interest include Rue Royale, a casino which dates back to 1920, and a Bath House of the same time, which is built in a neo-classicist style and offers curing baths as well as beauty treatments.
