Spa, the "pearl of the Ardennes" is surrounded by wooded hills, crisscrossed by ancient footpaths that lead to some of the numerous springs that made this town famous.  The iron-rich waters can also be drunk in several different drinking halls in the town, the most famous being the Pouhon Pierre-le Grand.  Indeed, Peter the Great and numerous other famous visitors to Spa can be admired in the "Livre d'Or" which is housed in this building - after tasting the water of course!  A short funicular ride will take you to the modern spa facility on top of the hill, where you can bathe in traditional copper baths and marvel at the thousands of tiny bubbles that will gather on your skin!
