Veneto boasts an extraordinary tradition with regard to thermal centres.
In the following lines we will give a historical hint of the thermal centres in Veneto.
Veneto is the biggest thermal basin in Europe: several wellness centres are locatedi in the area of the Euganean Spas and the Recoaro Spas giving Abano Terme, Montegrotto Terme, Recoaro Terme and the other smaller thermal centres a great tourist importance.
For two thousand years the Euganean Spas have been symbol of wellness and health.
The Euganean Spa, plunged in the green of the park on the Euganean hills very close to Padova, represent with the two main thermal centres of Abano and Montegrotto Terme the ideal place to find your own wellness and spend a relaxing holidays in one of the several wellness centres in Veneto.
Wellness centres are present in small towns in Veneto such as Galzignano, Battaglia and Monteortone di Teolo, ideal places to find balance, wellbeing and beauty.
The secret lies in the hot salt-bromine-iodine and radioactive water that comes from the rain that falls in the Monti Lessini in the Prealps, above Verona and reach the Euganean area through an underground passage of around 100 km that takes 25 – 30 years. In this passage the water reaches a temperature of 87 degrees and is enriched with mineral salts (sodium chloride, bromine, iodine) present in the subsoil. Its chemical composition and the high temperature play an important role in the therapeutic action of the mud, thanks to which the Euganean Spas are one of the main internal centres for mud bath therapy.
The first ones who studied the therapeutic properties were the academics of the University of Padova in the Renaissance but only after following studies it was possible to discover the origin of the acquifers of the thermal waters in the subsoil.
In 1980 the Association of Hotel Owners of Abano Terme, Montegrotto Terme and Battaglia Terme set up a Center for Thermal Studies, called Pietro d'Abano, that focuses on scientific research in the field of thermal medicine, the study, promotion and increase of activities related to this sector and every field of scientific and therapeutic application. Through the in-depth study of the primary components of thermal resources like water, weeds and mud the Study Centre does systematic scientific research on thermal medicine and constantly monitors the effects of mud therapy to guarantee the absolute quality of therapies.
