Long Description:
Located practically on the bed of the Miño river, it is an open-air thermal complex at the foot of an old wooden mill (an acea ) totally restored, from which it takes its name ( muíño is the Galician word for "mill"). It is surrounded by a wide green recreational area, which blends with the riverside vegetation of the place.

The complex is made up of five pools: a main glass of 200 m2, a second of 130 m2 and two other smaller ones of 55 and 45 m2, in addition to a glass of cold water for contrast baths. Bathing water is around 40ºC here. The whole enclosure is fed by various upwellings flowing at temperatures between 65 and 72ºC, some of the hottest on the Peninsula.

The waters of these hot springs are weakly mineralized and alkaline: bicarbonate-sodium, fluorinated and silicated.

Ubicado prácticamente en el lecho del río Miño, se trata de un conjunto termal al aire libre al pie de un antiguo molino en madera (una acea) totalmente restaurado, del cual toma el nombre (muíño es la palabra gallega para «molino»). Está rodeado de una amplia zona verde recreativa, que se funde con la vegetación de ribera del lugar.

El conjunto lo forman cinco piscinas: un vaso principal de 200 m2, un segundo de 130 m2 y otros dos más pequeños de 55 y 45 m2, además de un vaso de agua fría para baños de contraste. El agua de baño ronda aquí los 40º C. Todo el recinto está alimentado por varias surgencias manando a temperaturas de entre 65 y 72º C, algunas de las más calientes de la Península.

Las aguas de estas termas son de mineralización débil y alcalinas: bicarbonatadas-sódicas, fluoradas y silicatadas.
