The sacred waters of San Casciano dei Bagni

Visit the rediscovered sanctuary and swim in Fonteverde Spa thermal baths

The Santuario Ritrovato in San Casciano dei Bagni is one of the most sensational archaeological discoveries of recent years. From the muddy waters, near the large bath (the well-known free spas at the foot of the village), emerged a sanctuary from the Augustan era dedicated to the waters, with a tub and a monument dating back to the same period. Likewise, the finds re-emerged from the hot waters are of great importance and interest: bases and sections of columns, gold and silver coins, votive bronzes, inscriptions mentioning Apollo, Fortuna, Isis, deities associated with health, which suggest the sacredness of those waters.

With this exclusive tour, available only on Saturdays, you will visit the excavation with those who unearthed it, starting from the exhibition hall of the Stanze Cassianensi and then walking to the excavation.

Once the visit is over, the itinerary through the sacred waters of San Casciano dei Bagni continues in Fonteverde, once a private spa facility commissioned by the Medici and today a luxurious spa. Just like the antiquarian spirit of the 1600s, pieces related to the finds found during the recent excavation are still exhibited inside the villa. Once admired the gallery, is time to discover the beneficial effects of the water with a hot bath in one of the most beautiful spas in Italy.
