Pope pius ii and lorenzo the magnificent used these baths.

They say this spa was known by the Etruscans and was widely used by the Romans, as attested by the plaque on the porch of Santa Catalina church. It is also said that these waters were consecrated to the nymphs. These baths were very popular in medieval times, due to its proximity to the Via Francigena, which linked Europe with northern Italy. Vignoni's thermal waters were used for personal hygiene and to treat many diseases. The thermal waters have a temperature of approximately 49 ° and sulfur bicarbonate make it very suitable for skin problems. The Baths were equipped with a gallery or porch, where the sick could shelter from the unmerciful weather with divided areas for men and women. In addition to the rabble, Pope Pius II and Lorenzo the Magnificent used these baths.

The square in the water!

Located in the Val D'Orcia, the small village of Bagno Vignoni is one of the most beautiful places in the region: the tiny hamlet has a rather peculiar characteristic: virtually the town square is made up of a large pool of thermal water, around which are were built the houses and the church of San Giovanni Battista. The appearance of the village has not changed over the centuries and what we see today dates back almost to the middle ages. The spa bath is fed by a hot spring that flows from the volcanic soil: very spectacular during the winter, when the water vapor makes the place very charming. Going down the steep slope that is next to the center, you can reach a narrow gorge where the river Orcia, with natural hot pools where you can dive. Alternatively, you can relax in the spa pool a few hours of Bagno Vignoni, with indoor and outdoor pools.

La piazza nell'acqua!

Situato nella Val D'Orcia, il piccolo borgo di Bagno Vignoni è uno dei luoghi più suggestivi della regione: la minuscola frazione ha una caratteristica piuttosto particolare: praticamente la piazza del Paese è costituita da una grande vasca di acqua termale, attorno alla quale sono state edificate le abitazioni e la chiesa di San Giovanni Battista. L’aspetto del borgo non ha subito modifiche nel corso dei secoli e ciò che possiamo ammirare oggi, risale praticamente al medioevo.
La vasca termale è alimentata da una sorgente calda che sgorga dal suolo vulcanico: molto scenografico durante l’inverno, quando il vapore dell’acqua rende il luogo decisamente suggestivo.
Scendendo la ripida scarpata che si trova a fianco del centro, si può raggiungere una stretta gola dove scorre il fiume Orcia, con piscine naturali calde in cui è possibile immergersi. In alternativa, è possibile rilassarsi qualche ora nella piscina termale di Bagno Vignoni, con vasche interne ed esterne.

The terme di bagno vignoni

In Tuscany there are many hot springs. I comment that this is in a village near Pienza and date back to Roman times. Now preserved as a memorial and if someone wants to use the hot springs of the town must go to a Hotel Spa has been created for this purpose. Pius II (who built his name in Pienza), St. Catherine of Siena and Lorenzo the Magnificent are some of the historical characters who enjoyed this pool apart from many artists. Worth a short stop to enjoy this small Tuscan corner.

Las termas de bagno vignoni

En la Toscana hay muchas fuentes de aguas termales. Esta que os comento está en una aldea cercana a Pienza y se remontan a la época romana.

Actualmente se conservan como monumento y si alguien quiere usar las aguas termales de la localidad debe acudir a un Hotel Spa que se ha creado al efecto.

Pío II (El que construyó Pienza en su nombre), Santa Catalina de Siena o Lorenzo el Magnífico son algunos de los personajes histórico que disfrutaron de esta piscina aparte de muchísimos artistas.

Vale la pena una breve parada para disfrutar de este pequeño rincón toscano.
