60,000 slabs of Vals quartzite, stacked into a splendid architectural tribute to the archaic world of the Vals valley. Peter Zumthor did not just build any old thermal spa. He built the Therme, epitome of a thermal spa. A sensation, if ever there was one!
The baths, created by the architect Peter Zumthor from local quartzite, are located where Graubünden’s unique thermal mineral source comes out of the ground. The architecture is of timeless quality and simple elegance. It reflects the original bathing experience: the contact with the stone and the water of different temperatures. The baths open the senses to scents and sounds for the ritual of bathing.
