La Fontaine Chaude

This hot fountain is one of the true symbols of the spa. It was built in the 19th century on the presumed site of the old Roman thermal baths. 2,400,000 litres of water flow through every day. The water temperature is 64°C. The hot sources of Dax come from an underground water sheet which is heated to this highest temperature at a depth of 2000m.
