Teaser Tuesday: the Baths at Caldas da Rainha

It’s always very satisfying when geography works in your favor. Guess what happened to be directly on Jack and Jane’s route in The Lure of the Moonflower, just when I (I mean, they) needed it?

A historic hot spring.

Here is one of the baths as it would have been in the eighteenth century:


And as it is now:

Caldas da Reina bath

Pretty neat, no?

    That’s the city where I am from in Portugal! It’s a lovely spot, with beautiful parks and buildings, just a short ride from the beach! I highly recommend it – we are known for baths, particularly graphic pottery and our farmer’s market in the town square (with pine nut necklaces and straw purses,) 🙂

    Well in case if any one of them suffer emotional or stress maladies the hot spring could definetly help!
