As well as spectacular scenery, fabulous mountains and amazing skiing Bormio is blessed with an abundance of natural thermal mineral water. The Ancient Romans discovered the curative and beneficial power of the waters. Their knowledge has been handed down through the centuries and today, over 2000 years later, the culture and the philosophy of the Roman Baths have been maintained.
The thermal water springs offer detoxicating and relaxing properties and provide a break from the daily stress of city life in truly unique surroundings. The regenerative and invigorating properties of the water offer a wonderful way to recuperate after a day skiing or an excursion in the Stelvio National Park.
