No 1739. gada (pec hercoga Birona paveles) lidz 1940. gadam te darbojas serudens vannu dziedniecibas iestade - pirma Latvija. 1739. gada Rigas garnizona arsts Benjaminš Teofils Grofs uz tejieni veda dziedinat 10 karavirus. Izveselojušies visi karaviri, iznemot vienu, kam bijusi lauzta kaja. Grofs pateiciba zino avota ipašniekam Kurzemes hercogam Ernestam Johanam Bironam, sakot, ka avots ir palidzejis labak, ka visas Rigas zales. Hercogs licis nopirkt zemi ap Barbeles avotu un uzcelt arstniecibas iestadi. 18. gs. Barbeles seravots bija slavenaka šada tipa iestade Latvija., lidz attistoties celiem Kemeri un Baldone to aizenoja. Bez tam 19.gadsimta serudens koncentracija avota kritas. 20. gs. sakuma Barbele arsteti reimatisma slimnieki - to nomaja Latviešu sieviešu palidzibas korpuss, kas iekartoja proceduru eku un viesnicu, iekopa parku un atklaja deju laukumu. Kurorts tika izpostits 2. pasaules kara laika. Tagad apkaime labiekartota, bet arstniecibas iestades vairs nav.

[ENG]
Small stream goes from this site to nearby Iecava river. This spring has been first mentioned in 1739. Here operated the oldest sulphuric bath in Latvia - from 1739 to 1940. Spring became renowned in metropolis - Riga - in 1739. Physician of Riga garrison brought 10 ill soldiers here for treatment then. After cleaning the spring soldiers were rewarded. 9 out of 10 soldiers became healthy, the one who didn't had a broken leg. During the 18th century Barbele spring was the most renowned health spring in the area until Baldone and later - Kemeri - owershadowed the fame of Barbele spring. Unfortunately the chemical composition of the spring changed too - over the 19th century the degree of mineralisation decreased. Since the World War II there are no more health care activities on-going around this spring.
