Restored Roman "sanatorium" in Collado Mediano

In the Spanish town of Collado Mediano (near Madrid) the process of restaurants of ruins after the ancient “sanatorium”, referred to as El Beneficio, was completed. Moreover, according to pap nearby, a campsite was built, for those interested in history and the holiday atmosphere, under the cloud. Thanks to this, tourists will learn what the Roman way to relax looked like. All this thanks to the support of the local authorities, amounting to EUR 300 000.

A Roman property from the 3rd century CE is right next to the road leading from Segovia to Titulcia. Its discovery occurred almost a hundred years ago – in 1917. The parish priest Ricardo Fernández García found the find. The antique “sanatorium” was a place where travellers could take advantage of the hot air in the thermal baths, swimming pools and spend the night in the accommodation.

The building had dimensions of approx. 15 by 15 meters; however, there was no glamour in it, and the functionality necessary to serve travellers. The process of the ruins restaurant and the construction of the museum began in 2008.
