The Bolognese Apennines have always had a wealth of hot springs that provide curative waters. Porretta Terme has exploited these sources to become a point of reference in the region. The thermal baths of Porretta data back over a thousand years and have an articulated history. Legend has it that it owes its fame to a sick ox, now the emblem of the spa centre, which recovered after quenching its thirst in one of the springs.
The sulphurous and salsobromoiodic waters are rich in curative properties that have a positive effect on the human body.
The complexity of its hydromineral heritage provides for a wide range of treatments and curative activities to treat a wide range of pathologies. The spa centre offers a range of thermal treatments throughout the year ranging from balneotherapy – a thermal pool in which you immerse yourself in salsobromoiodic waters at 35°, giving you an immediate sensation of muscular relaxation – to bathing in ozone therapy pools.
The spa centre also offers non-curative packages for those who simply wish to indulge themselves and relax with massages and relaxing body and facial treatments, ranging from thermal muds to Ayurvedic medicine treatments.
