Alange Roman Baths

Alange, Spain

There has been a spa at Alange at least since Roman times when a bathhouse was constructed with separate facilities for men and women. They already existed in the time of Trajan and Adrian, in the 2nd century CE. The Roman building is rectangular and two circular vaulted chambers can be found, one for women and one for men. In the centre of the chambers are the pools, which are also circular. The vaults in the chambers are hemispherical with skylights in the centre. After several centuries of being abandoned, in the 19th century they were refurbished and the current building was built.

I tried contacting them via WhatsApp. Took 24hrs for them to respond. Still no idea if I could have gotten a treatment there. Maybe if u call it works better? Conclusion: no other review possible than that the service via WhatsApp is below average.

We have been to the spa twice thanks to the knowledge of Spanish friends. It’s wonderful not seeing any other Americans there, and hardly any non-Spaniards. It is absolutely the best spa and provides the best massages and other treatments we have experienced. I only wish I lived in Spain so I could get there more easily.

Topography of Terror

The Topography of Terror (Topographie des Terrors) is an outdoor and indoor history museum. It is located on Niederkirchnerstrasse, formerly Prinz-Albrecht-Strasse, on the site of buildings which during the Nazi regime from 1933 to 1945 were the headquarters of the Gestapo and the SS, the principal instruments of repression during the Nazi era.

The buildings that housed the Gestapo and SS headquarters were largely destroyed by Allied bombing during early 1945 and the ruins demolished after the war. The boundary between the American and Soviet zones of occupation in Berlin ran along the Prinz-Albrecht-Strasse, so the street soon became a fortified boundary, and the Berlin Wall ran along the south side of the street, renamed Niederkirchnerstrasse, from 1961 to 1989. The wall here was never demolished.
