As the legend goes, Saturn, the mythical Roman God, sent lightning crushing down on earth to punish men for fighting. A bolt hit the ground and from that day forth, the thermal springs have blessed the land, restoring peace to our planet.

Legend aside, the springs originate from a volcanic crater buried deep within the ground, which gave life to the hot waters in ancient times. To this day, the waters flow plentifully, 500 litres per second, at a temperature of 37.5 degrees centigrade.

This allows the water to fully replenish itself every four hours, six times a day. Thereby, maintaining its health benefits and cleanliness, without need for external chemicals.
