Water has always been considered an element of vital importance both for human survival and for the development of civilization. In fact, the origin and the development of many populations have always been strictly connected with the presence of water. Human beings also believed that water could protect them from diseases and favour their healing. For all these reasons magic powers have been attached to it since ancient times, to such an extent that it was considered a gift from the gods. Numerous myths and legends tell of miraculous waters which heal all kinds of disease, either of the soul or of the body.
Based on the Legislative Decree No 176, October 8th 2011 enacted to implement Directive 2009/54/CE, the waters of the “Terme di Orte” qualify as: mineral, hypothermal, sulphureous, microbiologically pure, rich in mineral salts, bicarbonate calcic, sulphate, magnesic, fluoride. The water flows directly from underground at a temperature of 29 C° and, due to its composition, is suitable for the treatment of many skin diseases.
At the thermal resort, besides balneotherapy in the two pools and under the hydro-massage waterfall, drinking treatments are also available at our fountain “Le Sette Cannelle” (The Seven Waterspouts).
