The Ancient Baths of Bormio

Fontium plurimorum natura mira est fervore, idque etiam in iugis Alpium (but nature is marvelous, for the heat of countless hot springs, which exists even between the high passes of the Alps): with these words, Pliny the Elder (23-79 AD) refers in all probability to the natural hot springs of Bormio in his Naturalis Historia. Also, Cassiodorus (535-536 AD) spoke of Bormio’s hot springs in his works, providing further evidence of the extent to which the hot springs of Bormio and the Alta Valtellina were already well known in antiquity.

Bagni Vecchi – The Old Baths

This interesting mix of history and wellness makes the Baths of Bormio particularly fascinating. At the Bagni Vecchi, in addition to the Roman Baths, which in all probability are the originals, you will find a wide assortment of pools, baths, steam, and wellness features, including the Medieval, the Imperial, and the Archduchess, plus the unforgettable San Martino Hot Spring, which with its steam grotto, represents a unique example in the alpine area that provides a completely natural therapeutic sauna.
