This resort, recognised for its healing waters, which are among the saltiest in Europe, offer health treatments far removed from the stresses and strains of daily life, among the green hilly landscapes of Jura.  A Zen body and mind in the heart of nature, the irresistible invitation offered by the Salins-les-Bains Spa.  

The secret of its success, salt and its waters that offer a multitude of virtues

In Salins-les-Bains, salt has always been a major source of economic and industrial activity.

The vestige of a sea dating from 200 million years ago, above all, salt is a geological treasure that surfaces in the form of natural salt springs.

Since the Middle Ages, humans have exploited these springs through ingenious systems of pumps and wells, of which the town of Salins has preserved a magnificent example, the Grande Saline, a UNESCO World Heritage site.

These waters are also a wonderful health ally. Their high content in salt and trace elements offer great therapeutic virtues which, today, can be enjoyed at the Salins Spa.

In the frame of medical treatments, the Salins Spa is particularly recommended for the treatment of rheumatism as well as gynaecological conditions and certain problems concerning children's development.
