Águas de Lindoia

Águas de Lindoia (Lindoia Waters) is a Brazilian city of the state of São Paulo. It is a tourist spot in part due to its hot springs, being part of the Circuito das Águas, also including the cities of Amparo, Jaguariúna, Lindoia, Monte Alegre, Pedreira, Serra Negra and Socorro.[1]

History[edit]

Before the 1900s, the location was only known by adventurers who crossed the woods searching for gold. Having contracted diseases during their journeys, these adventurers found the cure in the warm waters that flowed from the mountains. In 1909, the Italian doctor Francisco Tozzi learned from his father Henrique Tozzi about the medicinal properties of the Springs. Francisco lived in Serra Negra, and ended up buying the region auctioned by the government, making the property a public space.[2]
