Castel San Pietro Terme is on the border between Emilia and Romagna and renowned for its thermal spa, brand new 18-hole golf course and race-track.
The origin of spa treatments in Castel San Pietro dates back to 1337, although the first real spa facility was built in 1870. Even then, it was characterised by a completely medical, scientific approach.
The Terme di Castel San Pietro use both sulphurous and sodium chloride bromide and iodide water: in recent years, the traditional spa treatments have been joined by those of the wellbeing sector and rehabilitation, while there is also a special children’s section decorated with the artwork of its young guests.
Not to be missed is the Pork Chop Festival during "Settembre Castellano", featuring the famous "Carrera", a race with motorless cars.
