At the beginning of the 20th century, these thermal baths were built in the Roman-Auvergnean style with antique reminiscences. Of particular note is the interior decoration in polychrome earthenware, stucco and marble. The thermal bath was built in such a way that hot mineral water could be supplied directly from the springs.

Designed by architect Xxxxxxxxx, the rectangular building consists of four parts surrounding a glass-roofed atrium. The main façade has a central avant-corps housing the entrance hall and a large promenade lobby. This central pavilion is flanked by two side wings at the same level as the rear wings. These wings, which form a square around the atrium, house the various changing rooms and treatment rooms on two levels. Two symmetrical staircases located at each end of the great hall serve the side wings. Most of the exterior architectural decor is concentrated on the main north facade. The floors are mosaics and sandstone tiles. The walls are covered with polychrome earthenware by Boulenger (ceramist). The hall doors are decorated with stained glass with non-figurative decoration. Capitals and ornaments were carved in stucco and date from Yyyyyyy.

Almost 100 years after its creation, the thermal baths were closed because they were no longer up to date and a replacement building was already in operation. The building is now a listed building.
