Havza thermal spas are one of our spas whose history goes deep in the past. Strabon wrote that spas used to be very famous and Romans used to call here “Thermae Phosemonitarum”.

But according to another source, Havza Spas were established on the springs which emerged from the basement of the church that had collapsed in 1022 as a result of an earthquake. It is one of the Byzantine period spas. But, in time it lost its usability and put back into operation by the repairs made by Seljuks in 1245.

Also Havza district is a thermal center where Ataturk stayed here for 18 days in 1919 and said “I have regained health in Havza Spas”.
