La Laja Spa - Other Activity San Juan - Argentina

La Laja village doesn’t have much in the way of historical buildings, as it was the epicenter of the 1944 earthquake. It does, however, provide relief from the rigor of the road. Termas La Laja has three pools, each in a different setting. One is surrounded by native plants. A second has an Arabesque fountain and is amid a palm grove. The third, in a small valley, is adorned by shaggy pines. All have sulfur-rich, 26-38ºC (79-100ºF) water. Archaeological ruins at the site prove these hot springs and its curative mud have been used since pre-Hispanic times.
