The long route of our water originates in the Lessini Mountains, in the pre-Alps, where it infiltrates the soil and goes underground to a depth of 3.000 metres, rising its temperature of 3° C every 100 metres of depth. This water runs 80 kilometres in about 25 to 30 years, enriching in mineral salts along the way, before springing in our hot springs at a temperature of 85° C.
This precious water is used for inhalation therapy and the maturation of the mud which is used in mud therapy, it becomes a primary component in the thermal baths, the swimming pools, the sweating grottos, still maintaining its beneficial properties.
