As Burgas are hot springs in the historic center of Ourense, in Galicia, Spain.[1] They include Burga do Medio, which is infused with gas, Burga de Arriba and a Burga de Abaixo. The waters are similar to those of Carlsbad, and gush from granite rock to the west of the town at almost the boiling point.[2] The hot mineral waters gush at 80 gallons per minute.[3]
