Principal fountain of Burga de Abaixo

As Burgas are hot springs in Ourense, Spain.[1] They include la Burga de Surtidero, which is infused with gas, as well as la Burga de Arriba and la Burga de Abajo. The waters are similar to those of Carlsbad, and gush from granite rock to the west of the town at almost the boiling point.[2] The hot mineral waters gush at 80 gallons per minute.[3]
