The famous racetrack of Francorchamps is not located in the city of Spa. Since 1977 Francorchamps has been merged with Stavelot. A village named Blanchimont never existed.

Spa is located in Belgium and not in Hungary, the large lake probably has gone astray.

Geographical precisions[edit]

I'm living in Liège, not far from Spa.

  • The circuit is not indeed part of Spa, but Stavelot. The 2 cities are separated by the Malchamps Hill. The circuit is about 10 kilometers far from the city. The airport is part of Spa.
  • The springs are not hot, only cold with iron and carbonic gaz (see fr:Pouhon)
  • The city is also famous because casinos are born here at the end of the XVIIIth century : "La Redoute" and the "Vauxhall" (see for example Kubrick's Barry Lyndon). A lot of famous personnalities came here for the springs : Tsar Pierre the Great, Marguerite de Valois (Queen Margot), Vaclav Havel, Victor Hugo, ...
  • there is indeed a lake in Spa, the "Lac de Warfaz". The river of the city is called the "Wayai". Flowing into the river "fr:Hoëgne", then the river "fr:Vesdre", the river "Ourthe", the river "Meuse", and North Sea.

Page Move[edit]

This move is suggested since spa is a common English word and those uses don't fit into the current article. In fact the different uses of the word spa likely means spa would become a disambiguation page to get individuals to the desired entry.Vegaswikian

This article has been renamed as the result of a move request. violet/riga (t) 22:32, 26 Mar 2005 (UTC)
