En Chile se reconocen cerca de 280 fuentes termales, con diferentes características de acuerdo al territorio en que se encuentran. Así, las termas del norte se pueden ubicar a más de cuatro mil metros de altura, en pleno Altiplano, y las del sur pueden existir al nivel del mar. Para levantar información sobre termas de Chile, empezando por las que se ubican en la zona norte, la arquitecta Jimena Eyzaguirre, emprendió la misión de visitar cada una de la que se tuviera un registro. De esta forma, logró hacer una selección y elaborar un libro con 40 termas que se encuentran hacia el norte de Chile. Aquí te contamos más información sobre su aventura y cómo conseguir el libro.
