Caldea uses the water which emerges from the thermal source in Escaldes-Engordany at 68 degrees Celsius to create a harmonious interrelation between the body and water in futuristic surroundings. In ancient Catalan, the word ‘caldea’ means tonifying and warm. In Roman times, the word ‘calidae’, from which the name of the town of Escaldes in Andorra originates, designated a warm water source.
Also, the thermal waters are rich in sulfur, sodium and minerals, they are too greasy as thermal plankton. Nevertheless, after the Roman times, after all the history, two thousand years later, Caldea offers you a new form of well-being and enjoyment, an encounter with water in all its possible forms, from steam to ice, from Japan to Finland.
The whole architecture is cutting edge, the building looking like crystals that have been cut unevenly, certainly will make you wonder how is it possible for a small country like Andorra to have such a paradise!
