Although the Castel San Pietro spa was founded in 1870, the healing power of its sodium chloride, bromide and iodide-rich sulphur water was known as far back as 1337.
After a complete renovation was carried out in 1955 following the Second World War, the Terme di Castel San Pietro is now a cutting-edge facility that places great emphasis on body care and wellness.
Far from the hustle and bustle of the city and nestled in the lush greenery of 4,000-square metre parkland, the complex is an oasis of peace and harmony, just half an hour drive from Bologna.
Together with the thermal water therapies, wellness is what it's all about, which is the key focus of the Anusca Beauty Space building, affording direct access to the like-named hotel located nearby.
The Terme di Castel San Pietro has made the therapeutic effects of the sodium chloride, bromide and iodide-rich water its own. This water is extracted from 500 metres deep underground and has anti-inflammatory effects to help relieve conditions affecting the respiratory tract, skin and mucous membranes.
With a high concentration of hydrogen sulphide, making it what is known as sulphur water, this particular water is used to treat certain respiratory tract disorders, as well as conditions of the digestive tract and the autonomic nervous system.
Guests seeking to restore and reinvigorate the body with the waters of Castel San Pietro can choose the treatment best suited to their needs, such as inhalation sessions, which children can partake in too, rehabilitation sessions, therapeutic mud and thermal pool baths.
Promising a full-scale wellness immersion, the wellness area at the Anusca Beauty Space features a spa with a sauna, a Turkish bath, experience showers, a relaxation area, a gym and an indoor and outdoor pool.
The perfect finish to a relaxation journey at the Terme di Castel San Pietro is a stop at the beauty centre. This facility offers purifying and soothing detox treatments for the face, slimming and firming treatments for the body, sessions specifically targeting skin ageing and much more.
