The spring of Lielbata that will surprise everyone with its unusual clarity - it is the largest natural clear spring in Latvia and one of the few in northern Europe that produces biologically active and properly structured water from the bowels of the earth. For centuries, it has been attributed with it’s healing properties. Historical sources tell that a sanatorium was created here in 1923 at the Lielbata Castle due to the naturally pure and healing environment in this area that lasts up to this day. The water temperature of Lielbara spring is 6 degrees celsius all year through, therefore in winter, at a heavy frost, the steam is rising up from the spring.
