Informationstafel der Emerita-Quelle
The Emerita spring was first tapped in 1838. Unfortunately, it has not been accessible for a long time, but the mineral water still flows.

Description

The highly mineralised Emerita spring is tapped together with the Lucius spring in the Büvetta Tarasp drinking hall, an architectural jewel of Graubünden's spa tourism. The drinking hall and the hiking trail have been closed since spring 2007 due to the danger of rock falls.
