TRIPONZO BATHS: MIRACULOUS SPRINGS
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.
