This source, known since ancient times, has long been considered sacred. The water that gushes from it has multiple properties and is indicated to treat skin diseases, joint ailments, rehabilitation of the limbs, liver and kidney ailments.
A little history
* 1824 Construction at the very place of the emergence of the sources, a basic thermal establishment, known under the name of "Rotonde". More than 400 curists go to Les Eaux each year, and soldiers from the strong garrisons of Mont-Dauphin and Briançon are sent there for treatment.

* March 19, 1935 an earthquake shook the Rotonde, and the source, displaced by several meters, was found outside the building. Today it springs from a pink Guillestre marble rock erected in front of the Rotunda, and flows into 4 basins built in the 1980s.

A little geology
The emergence of the sources of the Plan de Phazy is located on the fault of the Durance, where several geological layers overlap. The water, circulating in this fault injected with gypsum, more than 1000m deep, mineralizes and heats up. It is also loaded with chlorine, sodium, carbon dioxide, radium and cesium.

This is how its unique composition of silica, iron oxide, chlorides, sulphates, calcium and magnesium gives it therapeutic properties.
To date, the site remains freely accessible all year round ...

You will discover on site:
* The Rotonde building
* The spring that springs from a rock in pink Guillestre marble
* 4 pools with water at 28 ° (be careful, the surroundings are slippery!)
* Public WC
* Buvette (open July and August)
* Shaded spaces
