Porretta and the Roman Thermae
The spa waters of Porretta Terme are 2000 years old. Legend has it that the curative properties of its waters were discovered thanks to a sick ox. The ox, too weak to pull a plough, was released by its owner and during its wanderings drank at the Spa spring where it found renewed vigour. Since that day the healed ox has been the emblem of the Porretta Spa Centres..
Immersed in a tranquil atmosphere and the luxuriance of the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines, 400 metres above sea-level, Porretta invites you to dive into the precious waters of ancient spas, appreciated by the Etruscans and Romans, where Machiavelli stayed while writing the “Mandragola”, and where the nobility, intellectuals, artists and guests from all Italian states gathered at the close of the nineteenth century.
