Health & Wellbeing: Natural Spas


Thermal Baths of Raffaello, Petriano, province of Pesaro Urbino 
(Click here for map)

Among the hills of Montefeltro, a stone's throw from Urbino, surrounded by woods and immersed in nature, is Petriano, a suggestive medieval village that houses the Terme di Raffaello. They are called this because it was the famous artist who decanted them, calling them "miraculous waters". The water from the "La Valle" spring, which gives rise to the Terme di Raffaello, gushes out at a temperature of 14°C, and contains an extraordinary concentration of mineral salts in the form of sulphates and bicarbonates that make it unique. Inside the spa there is the Oasi Spa, the wellness center that offers wellness programs in the pool, face and body treatments, cosmetics and massages, as well as a line of cosmetic products. The thermal establishment has an agreement with the National Health Service.


The benefits of these thermal waters have been known to populations since ancient times, but it was during the Renaissance that their fame spread thanks to a high number of cures. In 1422 Bonaiuto Ramunzi founded the first hospital for those who went to Petriano to be treated with the waters of the spa.

The best-known testimony is that of Raffaello Sanzio, who in a letter to his uncle and tutor, in those days engaged in the Vatican to paint his famous Transfiguration, says how he ardently desired «to return to his homeland to drink a little of the miraculous waters of our Valley». The first scientific analysis dates back to the 19th century and is due to Professor Angelo Agrestini, who certified the curative efficacy of the waters of Raphael's baths: from that moment, the water took the name of "agrestiniana". The spa was completed in the 2000s.

Water specialties and spa treatments

Agrestinian water is classified as highly mineralized and sulphurous-sulphate-bicarbonate-alkaline-earthy.Excellent for the treatment of respiratory pathologies and of the locomotor and vascular systems, this water is very rich in trace minerals, such as magnesium, calcium, Sulfur, and is therefore very effective both for the prevention and for the treatment of the respiratory tract, the ear, of the vascular and musculoskeletal system.

The mud of the Terme di Raffaello matures in a fluid of abyssal clays of marine origin extracted from the Tausano quarry in the Municipality of San Leo.

Each thermal medicine treatment is offered: balneotherapy, inhalations, treatment of rhinogenous deafness, pulmonary ventilations, muds. But also whirlpools, hydro kinesitherapy, massages and motor rehabilitation.

In the wellness center for thermal and spa beauty treatments, the most renowned treatment is the Wellness itinerary which includes a 100 m2 heated thermal swimming pool equipped with waterfalls for neck and back massage, shower heads and hydromassage, where it is possible to follow courses of aqua gym, aqua soft and swimming against the current. Connected to it are two pools of thermal water for the vascular paths, completed by the infrared treatment for muscle relaxation. Facial and body beauty treatments are also available, such as press therapy, mud, salt and thermal water peeling, and candle massage.

Surrounded by a luxuriant natural park, in the Fano area, in the province of Pesaro and Urbino, a few kilometers from the sea, the Terme di Carignano are unfortunately closed at the moment and cannot be used by visitors.
We would like to point them out anyway, in the hope that the establishment will reopen soon, because the curative properties of the waters of the Beatrice spring, together with the strategic position close to the sea, have made these spas very effective in the treatment of respiratory pathologies thanks to the combination of the benefits of the thermal waters with sea air.


The spas take their name from the noble family of Da Carignano, lords of this area for a long time. The Terme di Carignano are located downstream of the medieval village where the ancient family palace stands, and include, within the beautiful, wooded park, the building for thermal therapies built to a design by Cesare Salvelli in the 1920s .After the Second World War, the complex was completely refurbished.

Water specialties and spa treatments

Pitinum Thermae is the thermal establishment of Macerata Feltria, in the province of Pesaro-Urbino. The spas are nestled in the hills of Montefeltro and a few kilometers from the Adriatic coast.
Macerata Feltria is a splendid medieval village located on the banks of the Apsa river, from which one of the two natural springs of sulphurous water that feed the spa takes its name. The properties of these waters, rich in mineral salts and with a high magnesium content, make them particularly suitable for the treatment of respiratory system diseases.

The Roman patrician family Pitinum gives its name to the Terme di Macerata Feltria, already known and frequented since Roman times, as evidenced by the vast archaeological ruins in the area. Later, in the fifteenth century, Pitinum was valued by the dukes of Montefeltro. In 1990 the modern center was created, of a high standard and affiliated with numerous institutions.

Water specialties and spa treatments

The Terme di Pitinum are fed by the Certalto spring, which flows at a temperature of 12 degrees. This water is so rich in minerals that it is classified as sulphurous, sulphate, bicarbonate and calcium-magnesium. Furthermore, thanks to the high hydrogen sulfide content, it is defined as medium-high sulfur content and is very tolerable by the body. This is why it is ideal for spa treatments for physically more delicate subjects such as the elderly and children. It is used in the treatment of phlegm, inflammation, as an antioxidant, decongestant and stimulant of the immune system, but it is also antiseptic. Excellent against diabetes and in cases of constipation thanks to their laxative effect, these waters are also an energizing and toning remedy for the muscles, thanks to the significant concentrations of magnesium.

The spring was discovered in 1923 during construction work on a bridge over the Rio Terro: the workers quenched their thirst with the water that flowed from two small caves nearby and began to talk about the beneficial effects they had experienced since they had started work on the bridge. Enrico Ricciardi, a well-known citizen of Sarnano, examined these effects, declaring them better than those of the waters of nearby Acquasanta. The Ministry of Health recognized the curative efficacy of the waters of Sarnano in 1930.The thermal activity began in 1932 with two simple waterspouts, installed in an open space near the place where the source was discovered. Other springs in the surrounding area were certified thermal in the following years: the water of the Terro and that of the Tre Santi thus feed, together with the spring of San Giacomo, the thermal establishment.

Water specialties and spa treatments

The bicarbonate-calcium water of San Giacomo, low in sodium, rich in magnesium, potassium and other minerals, is suitable to drink slowly for mineral water treatments and diluted in powdered milk for weaning. Its effects are draining, diuretic, laxative, and stimulate the metabolism of uric acid and the intestinal and hepatic systems. In fact, it prevents the formation of kidney stones, and is bottled as table water which promotes digestion and helps to overcome situations of constipation especially related to stress. The Tre Santi water, an oligomineral low in sodium but rich in magnesium, calcium and bicarbonate, is ideal for promoting digestion and diuresis and for counteracting pathologies such as gout and hyperuricemia. Used for balneotherapy, at a temperature of around 34° – 36°, it has many curative properties: it stimulates circulation, promotes metabolic drainage, has an antispasmodic and myorelaxant action.
It is also used in aesthetic medicine interventions against cellulite. The sulphurous water of Terro, rich in hydrogen sulfide, is used in inhalation treatments, such as balneotherapy and for gynecological treatments. This water is bactericidal, immunostimulant, decongestant, anti-seborrheic and anti-inflammatory. It also stimulates blood microcirculation. Since its main active ingredient is hydrogen sulfide, Terro water must be used at the source to be effective.


Thermal Baths of Acquasanta, province of Ascoli Piceno
(Click here for map)

The ancient village of Acquasanta Terme, located along the Roman Via Salaria in the upper valley of the Tronto river between the Sibillini Mountains and the Laga Mountains, hosts the homonymous spas. Summer is the best season to visit them, due to the pleasant ventilation that affects the height of Acquasanta (400 meters above sea level), immersed in immaculate nature in which to let your gaze wander while enjoying relaxation in the spa. The hot springs are numerous and flow at different temperatures (from a temperature of 22° to 38°), and the most renowned are those called Santa Maria and Pozzetto. Acquasanta Terme has small thermal pools with free and open access, which few know about - therefore you can also enjoy pleasant privacy, thanks to a short excursion to the sulphureous water source of the upper Tronto river. Furthermore, Acquasanta is located not far from the splendid Castelluccio di Norcia: a plus for spending a day or a weekend surrounded by the beauty of nature and history. The thermal establishment is made up of the "Italia e Spa" hotel, which includes a wellness center with sauna, Turkish bath, chromatic jet showers, mini-pool with hydromassage, relaxation room with herbal teas, beauty treatments, veranda overlooking the river, solarium and outdoor thermal pool.


Lucio Munazio Planco, Roman consul, healed in 50 BC thanks to the waters of the Acquasanta springs. Vicus ad aquas, as these baths were called at the time, was one of the most important baths of the Roman Empire: in fact, the soldiers, returning from battles, went here to regain strength thanks to the local springs. It seems that even Charlemagne knew the virtues of these waters and went there for a refreshing bath. In 1286, the municipality of Ascoli Piceno bought the Acquasanta springs and remained its owner for several centuries. After the succession of various owners, the spa area was reborn in the eighteenth century thanks to Massetti, and in 1780 the project called "Nuova fabrica delle Bagnarole" by the famous architect Lazzaro Giosafatti was carried out. In the early 1800s, archaeological excavations brought to light what remains of a Roman cistern, a swimming pool with mosaics in the dressing room, and the remains of stoves. According to historians, the Romans used the thermal waters to feed the structures that were probably located near the current church of Santa Maria.

Water specialties and spa treatments

The thermal plants, which use various springs that flow at a constant temperature of 38.6 degrees, are located at the bottom of a series of caves located about thirty meters above the bed of the Tronto river. The establishment is famous for the exceptional quality of respiratory care, and above all offers curative spa treatments, such as mud baths, baths and whirlpool baths, through which respiratory, otolaryngological and rheumatic diseases are treated, as well as rhinogenous deafness .

The curative treatments take place through:
• nebulization with a mist saturated with sulphureous vapor.
• inhalations of thermal vapors (steam and thermal water at a temperature of 38°);
• aerosol with mask or nosepiece.
• endotympanic insufflations.
• nasal or micronized douches.
• politzer and assisted pulmonary ventilation
• mud therapy (a warm paste made from sulphureous water is applied to the body and combined with a massage or hydromassage).

Lu Vurghe

Lu Vurghe, Open Air Thermal Spring, Acquasanta Terme, province of Ascoli Piceno
(Click here for map​​)

Lu Vurghe is a natural thermal spring, a real open-air spa. In 2019 a group of volunteers redeveloped the area and created three comfortable thermal pools, with free and open access: these small artificial pools are fed by the sulphurous waters that flow at a constant temperature of 28 degrees throughout the year. Their range is also constant, so that you can dive in any season. These thermal waters do not contain mud, because they are filtered naturally during their slow journey, thirty years long, through the limestone rocks, which they cross and then gush out on the surface. The waters of Lu Vurghe are very special: they have a pH lower than 8, they are highly drinkable, and contain calcium, sodium, carbon dioxide, bromides, chlorides, bicarbonates and iodides.

How to reach Lu Vurghe

Lu Vurghe is located near Acquasanta Terme, near the ancient Via Salaria, in the small hamlet of Santa Maria di Maggese, hidden in an age-old wood. Before going down the path, as there are often some street vendors in the area, you can buy excellent sandwiches with local salami or porchetta: it is ideal for stopping for lunch while remaining immersed in the pools of Lu Vurghe. The ancient path winds along the mountain, surrounded by vegetation, downhill: the difference in altitude is 61 meters - for this reason the place is not accessible with pushchairs or prams. Wooden handrails, steps and ropes allow you to walk the steepest points. During the 15 minutes of descent, the stream, the beach and the rocks can be glimpsed among the shrubs. The volunteers who oversaw the redevelopment of Lu Vurghe have installed an information sign, which describes the points of interest of the place, such as the birdwatching station and the rock climbing wall.
The artificial pools have been created with stones and wooden panels; they are of different heights and dimensions, and equipped with small waterfalls that allow a sort of natural whirlpool.
You can also make "do-it-yourself" mud packs: just rub the stones together around the tanks, which are covered with them... et voilà!
