We visited the Balneari Sant Vincenc during our stay in the Seu D'Urgell to use the thermal circuit.
The hot spring water is sulphurated (fantastic for rheumo-arthritic conditions and weaknesses of the respiratory tract). They have an outdoor natural spring water pool (no chlorine - yay!) down in the river basin with sun loungers. The setting is really idyllic, up in the Pyrenees with mountains on either side. After an hour or so outside we went up to the indoor thermal water pool - complete with hydromassage, jacuzzi, waterfalls/cascades and a heated granite seat to relax on. The whole room has floor-to-ceiling windows that afford magnificent views over the valley. We also had a treatment (nebulizer with a self-exfoliating treatment using a black eucaliptus-based soap) - highly recommended. Super pricing - we paid €35 for 2 people, 2 thermal circuits and 2 nebulizer treatments (includes hire of bathrobe, towel, flip-flops) and unlimited use of the thermal spring taps (we were advised to drink minimum 4 glasses to get the full benefits).
Would definitely return if I found myself in the area again.
