The History of the Thermal Waters of Bagno di Romagna
The name says it all: Bagno di Romagna, named for its famous "baths" that saw its birth and growth. The beneficial properties of these thermal waters were known and appreciated by the Romans and are now enhanced by 3 spas, beauty farms and wellness centres.
The Origins Of The Hot Springs
The ancients considered the thermal waters of Bagno di Romagna to come from the gods, a precious and health-giving gift from the mysterious depths of the earth. Today geologists can explain that the gift is not actually heaven-sent, but a little "miracle" of nature: the warm waters are in fact rain that fell some 10,000 years ago in the central part of the Tuscan-Romagna Apennines (Monte Penna, Poggio allo Spillo, Passo dei Mandrioli). During these thousands of years the water seeped down into the subsoil, it was heated geothermically and enriched with beneficial properties. The water became a concentrate of active natural elements (sulphur, bicarbonate, sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium, fluorine, chlorine, lithium, manganese, iron and ammonium), and then rose towards the surface along a fault line, until it reached Bagno di Romagna where it now flows at temperatures between 39 ° C and 47 ° C. The water that now flows out is physiological because it contains active elements that correspond to those of the human body. It is also medicinal and therefore can change and positively influence the conditions of our body. It is easily tolerated because it has none of the side effects of drugs. Finally, this water can be used to treat certain diseases and, above all, to prevent them, because it activates the body's natural defences.
