We also swam in a beautiful hot spring that according to legend use to be an old bath built as a gift from marc anthony to cleopatra  in the 7th century. An earthquake caused the Marble columns to fall and those are the columns we swim over today. The carbon minerals generate large amounts of bubbles that stick to your body as you glide through the warm water.
