Description:

A wonderful and very rare original vintage poster promoting Spa in Belgium as a travel destination.

Spa is a town in the Ardennes region of eastern Belgium. It's known for its mineral-rich thermal waters. In the southeast, surrounded by forest, is the Spa-Francorchamps motor-racing circuit, a venue for Formula 1 racing.

As the site of healing cold springs, Spa has been frequented as a watering-place since the 14th century. It is the town of Spa which has become eponymous with any place having a natural water source that is believed to possess special health-giving properties, as a spa.

The poster depicts a view of baths with text above and below.
