The thermal waters are between 32 and 38 degrees centigrade and are renowned for their powers of relaxation and for their role in the treatment of rheumatism, arthritis and other rehabilitation techniques.

During the colonial period natural springs were plentiful and have been used to supply the city’s water ever since. In 1831, Colonel José María Rincón Gallardo, owner at the time, obtained permission to build the baths next to the spring. They were built in a French-influenced neoclassical style and feature a patio adorned by fountains and arches.

Anita Brenner, the anthropologist, historian and journalist, once lived in the building that houses the Old Baths. She wrote books on Mexican art and history, including her book about the Mexican Revolution: The Wind that Swept Mexico.
