City of Acquasanta
Piazza XX Settembre, 12-0736 801262
Its history is intertwined with that of its baths: the ancient prehistoric cattle track, which later became the Via Salaria, was in Acquasanta a natural stopping point for the wealth of caves and the warmth of the healthy thermal waters: it is testimony to the ‘nickname of “Vicus ad Aquas” which indicates the military in the itineraries of the “Tabula Peutingeriana” (170 d. C.).
Each activity Acquasanta is characterized by water. The name itself comes from the presence of underground thermal water sulphurous aliemntano departments care of the Spa. Two true jewels of nature are attached to the baths and unfortunately not open to the public: the great and almost theatrical cave that houses the natural pool and the cave Orsini, unique for breadth and therapeutic properties, it was used until a few years ago for the cave therapy: perfect natural sauna. Besides these, a maze of other tunnels and caves of outstanding natural value (partially open) is kept from underground as in a casket. Another peculiarity is the excavation and processing of travertine, for compactness and quality known and exported all over the world.
