The Spa of L’Avella (a hamlet village of Catí) dates from the first half of the sixteenth century, after the appearance of the Virgin of L’Avella, according to legend. The Spa grew around a fountain (Fuente de L’Avellà) which gushed excellent sulphurous waters. Nowadays, part of the spring water is bottled by the Town Hall of Catí.
In the small spa town of L’Avellà apart from the fountain we can also discover various historic buildings:
La Fonda de L’Avellà built in 1786, was originally a type of hotel where people could stay who were visiting the spring. The building is currently under restoration.
Banys House (formerly known as Fonda Miralles), this building was constructed in 1845 and housed bathing facilities with the waters that flow from the spring, later it was used as a guest house and restaurant.
