Rockfort Mineral Spa

One of the oldest public facilities on the island, Rockfort Mineral Spa is not a spa as you might imagine a day spa. Instead, it is a natural mineral bath known for its healing properties.


No one is certain, but it is believed that the mineral bath appeared after an earthquake in 1907. It has been a national monument since 1992 and is known for the therapeutic mineral content. The spring is fed by a natural spring which comes from the surrounding mountains. Bath houses dot the property, both public and private.


The springs are open to visitors from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Tuesdays and Fridays, and also from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.
