The spring has been known and used since Roman times. Elbasan thermal baths contain scalding sulfur waters, which are created at a depth of about 13000 meters from the earth’s surface, at high pressure and temperature, due to the combination of oxygen with hydrogen and other chemicals. Driven by the high pressure of the gas, they reach the surface through rocky cracks. The water analysis of these springs was carried out in a specialized way by engineers, who identified high therapeutic values. Numerous respiratory tract diseases, nervous system, skin, stomach, etc. are treated there.
