The Roman Sulphur Baths of Hedionda are situated just below Manilva, and first became popular with the Romans over 2,000 years ago. Bathing rooms were created to make the most of the natural sulphur springs which flow from above the valley, and a large inner bathing chamber still exists.
Although it cannot be proved, sulphur, which has great healing properties, was thought to attract the Romans to the site, where they bathed regularly to improve the condition of their skin, and also to give them greater mental strength and prepare them for battle. Julius Caesar was even said to have bathed in the Roman Baths of Hedionda, Manilva, around 62BC. If you are feeling fit, hike a couples of kilometres upstream, which will eventually take you to the mills of Casares. Although the distance is not great, it is not an easy route, and will probably take you most of the day to negotiate. To get to the Roman Baths, turn off the A7 at the Lidl roundabout in Sabanillas, and head inland. Go under the toll road and follow the rough track along the river for 0.9 kilometres. The Baths are on the right hand side.
A Roman aqueduct is situated between the Baths and the coast, which is also said to hail from the days of Julius Caesar, and it was once used to drive a water wheel for a mill complex. Just to the west of Puerto Duquesa, which is also worth a visit if you want to spend a day by the marina, is the small village of Castillo. An 18th Century fortress stands at the entrance to Castillo, which was built in the late 1700s. More Roman ruins were found in 2007, adding to the historical importance of the site. Keep an eye out for cultural events and exhibitions which are regularly held at the castle. You can easily spend a day here, and enjoy lunch or dinner at one of the many fabulous fish and seafood restaurants in Castillo de Duquesa. This site is home to some of the most important Roman ruins in Andalucia, and is well worth a visit.
The Bath House, just to the south of the castle can also be explored, and consists of two large bathing rooms and an ancient underground heating system which can still be seen. Incredibly, some of the mosaic floors have also survived through the centuries, and north of the site is a Roman graveyard, and the site has grown into a major attraction for visitors to the Costa del Sol.
