Experience a spa with mineral waters from the Bay of Biscay
In the most elegant part of town, above the center of the city's main beach, La Concha, shines a white Baroque style shell - spa and thalassotherapy center La Perla. More than a hundred years ago, the ruling queen Maria Cristina turned Miramar Palace into her summer residence that she would visit once a year in the company of friends, servants and her pet dogs. At that time bathing in the sea water filled baths was considered therapeutic and an appealing aristocratic entertainment. A small rail trolley would deliver people from La Perla right into the ocean. The tradition of taking organic salt baths survives in the form of the fashionable spa center with an extensive selection of treatment.
