A peaceful and untouched natural setting surrounds the Bagni di Masino. The Bagni’s main points of interest are the thermal baths and the hotel that are located at 1172 metres of height and are surrounded by green forests and steep rocks.
The fame of this thermal source was already well-established in the 15th century but the idea to create a first, basic ‘shelter’ for those who wanted to benefit from this prodigious water only took shape in 1600.
Today the situation is completely different and, instead of a mere hut, there are two refined hotels, the ancient Hotel Terme Bagni Masino and the new Relais Bagni Masino, open in summer 2009.
The large majority of the thermal waters is used for therapeutic purposes but a small fountain from which it is possible to drink or draw water is also present.
The thermal waters gush from the Alps at a temperature of 38 degrees and with a mineral presence of about 500 mg per litre. From a chemical point of view, it is primarily composed of sodium, calcium and silica sulphates, that together account for 70% of the minerals present. A chemical analysis has confirmed the presence of a discrete level of radioactivity which means that the Bagni Masino’s water has a medium mineral-sulphate-alkaline level.
It is particularly recommended for curing digestive illnesses, illnesses of the female reproductive system and of the upper part of the breathing system and skin conditions.
