Unmissable Plombières-les-Bains !
Along the picturesque little streets of this ancient town, the houses with their facades patinated by time, evoke a period of prosperity.
Plombières-les-Bains charms the visitor with the unchanged atmosphere of its little streets and its rich heritage, whose secrets you’ll be able to discover through guided tours from the passionate guides of the Société d’Art et d’Histoire (Art and History Society). During your stroll you’ll discover exceptional stone buildings, which, though they sometimes bear traces of their antiquity, are no less wonderful. To seek out all the town’s charms, you must be attentive and look at the finer details that are often characteristic of large cities. These include the fantastic wrought iron of the 18th century, which decorates the “Town with the thousand balconies”.
We’re in a town where the word savoir-faire really makes sense. History testifies to this by the presence over the past centuries of craftsmen fashioning objets d’art intended for illustrious visitors to the spa. Today you find them in the historic centre or in the Clos des Deux Augustins, a gallery of antique dealers and artistic trades.
The town will unveil for you the ‘great men’ who gave the town its notoriety and its reputation for gentle manners. The names of its buildings and its streets speak volumes about the town’s opulent past: rue Stanislas, the Place Napoléon III or Beaumarchais, l’Espace Berlioz or the rue Benso Di Cavour.
Plombières-les-Bains’ influence also harks back to its springs, which are almost boiling at 85°C, giving it the hottest waters in Europe. Here you’ll be able to enjoy its benefits as you immerse yourself in the Roman balneotherapy, where well-being rhymes with heritage.
