Marrana Baths, Isla Plana. What to see in Murcia According to 11th and 12th century legends, there used to be a rheumatic  marrana (female pig) that could barely walk. With lots of hard work, the animal would reach the beach shores at Playa de los Barcos, where there was a hot water spring in which the animal loved to roll over. After some time, the pig was completely cured.
 
These baths, open to the public in the modern age on May 2, 1901 by Dr. Vera, were built in two different periods: the first in the late 19th century and early 20th century, and the second after the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939) when additional inner walls and baths were constructed. The Isla Plana thermal baths were abandoned halfway through the 20th century.

These baths are located between isla Plana and Caleta beaches
