montegrotto terme
la città di montegrotto terme


 

The city of Montegrotto Terme, along with the nearby Abano Terme, constitutes the Euganean thermal zone, or more precisely, the largest thermal center in Europe.

In spite of its prestige, Montegrotto is truly a place for all men and women. The city’s center is lively yet tiny, with a promenade surrounded by numerous shops as well as restaurants where visitors can taste food and wine. The beauty of Montegrotto is further enhanced by the landscape of the Euganean Hills’ Regional Park, which offers numerous opportunities to discover an abundant nature, medieval villages and villas throughout the Veneto region.

The hot water which flows from Montegrotto’s subsoil has been a vital component of treatments and cures since the ancient Roman times. The name of the city itself, which originates from “Mons Aegrottorum” – literally “mountain of sick people” – further testifies to the essential role of the hot water in promoting well-being. The ancient populations that inhabited these areas already well understood the therapeutic properties of hot water and attributed its cause to the gods. In fact, the miniature sculptures representing parts of the human body, called “ex voto” and discovered during excavations, were none other than special offers to the gods from sick people who were healed by the waters, and which were then thrown into the lakes as a sign of recognition.

Thirty thermal hotels are furnished with indoor and outdoor pools, hydro-massages, saunas and gyms, green areas, and a thermal center and beauty farm, where guests can luxuriate in total comfort and relaxation.
