Bancheto
The Bancheto is an indoor swimming pool built right over a mineral spring. The pool floor consists of porous tiles that allow the mineral water to enter the pool from the bottom and maintain a constant 95-98.6 Farenheit, (35-37 Celsius). There are separate facilities for both men and women. Each pool is 30 feet long and 25 feet wide with a depth of  2.5 feet. The pools are ideal for soaking and offer you the best water to be found anywhere in the area. The employees of the Banya Balneotherapy Center refer to the Bancheto, as a "natural jacuzzi. Dr. Chenko Chalukov, director of the rehabilitation clinic in Banya says, "the underwater massages are used for treatment of degenerative diseases of joint and spine, osteoposrosis, arthritis and rheumatism." The mineral water of the Bancheto eases pains from bad injuries and fractures, while you sit in silky, warm mineral water. There are also showers available in the same area where you can wash away the stress of the day and allow the water to bring your body and spirit back to life again.
The Bancheto comes highly recommended by the locals and many of them tell us that they use only the water found in the Bancheto for their own personal baths. According to them, it is by far the best water with the greatest capacity to heal. The Bancheto is located behind the Rehabilitation Center amongest the trees and park like atmosphere of the area.
