Portugal Douro Valley

History stops where the brand new, ultra-modern, super-contemporary spa building starts.

Thermal waters were discovered in Vidago Park as long ago as 1836. Their restorative and curative properties were the inspiration for the magnificent, ultra-clean-lined spa of today.

With waters drawn directly from deep granite bedrock, it naturally follows that treatments here reflect the water theme. Water healing and restoration are not the only menu items, however. The spa offers a vast range of specialized treatments and service combinations, all showcasing Portuguese health and beauty secrets.
