Spa[edit]

Bourbonne is a health resort due to hot springs. These thermal springs were known to the Gauls and to the Romans who built baths. The Romans called the springs Aquae Borvonis.[1] The name probably derives from the Gallo-Roman deity Borvo. More than 11,000 patients visit the spa each year.
