Archena originates back to pre-Roman times, the Romans discovered the healing properties of its waters and established a spa for their soldiers.
In the Middle Ages these baths were owned by the Knights of Santiago and later, the Order of San Juan, who used the mineral water to cure a variety of injuries.
In the nineteenth century, when the bourgeoisie made it popular to bathe in the waters, the Balneario de Archena underwent an architectural and conceptual transformation, becoming a place of healing, rest and luxury.
