The mirac­u­lous ther­mal wa­ters of Triponzo were al­ready well known in Ro­man times. Their heal­ing pow­ers were such as to gain a men­tion even in Vir­gil’s Aeneid. Closed more than thirty years, the Terme dei Bagni di Triponzo, of Cer­reto di Spo­leto, have re­cently re­opened. Th­ese an­ces­tral wa­ters con­tain sul­fur, cal­cium and other ben­e­fi­cial min­er­als in­clud­ing mag­ne­sium, which have holis­tic ef­fects that con­trib­ute to the balance of body and mind. The spas are sur­rounded by the green Um­brian woods. In this place you’ll find 18 emer­ald col­ored springs of sul­phur ther­mal wa­ters. The wa­ter be­gins its jour­ney in the Si­billini Moun­tains. As rain falls in the area it chan­nels into rivers and streams and pen­e­trates deeply into the ground. The wa­ter en­coun­ters the re­gions por­ous rock and re­turns to the sur­face en­riched by ma­te­ri­als it picks up from the soil and heated by the vi­tal­iz­ing heat of the Earth.
