Spa

Petriolo Spa (km. 80)
Le The Petriolo Spa was first mentioned in 1239 when Siena carried out a census of all the people who went there to be cured with its thermal waters; even Pope Pio II went there to benefit from the water’s exceptional properties. But the spa ? s origins are believed to date back to Roman times at the same time as the Roman settlements, discovered in the area. Situated alongside the Farma stream, the 40°C water – rich in sulphide hydrogen, excellent for curing respiratory ailments – is channeled by pipes that bring it up from a depth of 300 metres to the surface. A modern, thermal bath complex is well equipped for mud therapy, inhalation cures, nasal sprays and aerosol. Next to the Thermal Centre, there is also a Wellness Centre, offering varied treatments for the care and beauty of the face and body.
