Summary note:
The history of 'Spa' is intimately linked to that of its waters. The city, whose name has become the generic term used for health centers is one of the places added to the list of the 'Great Water Cities of Europe', recently detailed on UNESCO's world heritage indicative list. This recognition is based on the city's unique and delightful character which developed specific health treatments, the infrastructure and its landscapes around the springs, and became known as the "Café de Europe."
