Archaeology proves that Terme San Filippo were known even in Roman times and many documents say that famous people such as Lorenzo il Magnifico, for example, in the Middle Ages and in the Renassaince, used to go there for thermal care.
It is possible to find evidence of the curative properties of the thermal water both in scientific and literary books. Terme San Filippo are mentioned, for example, in the famous work "La Mandragola" by Machiavelli.
The thermal water is rich in sulphur, calcium and magnesium and has a 48° temperature. It has analgesic, anti-inflammatory and myo-relaxing properties for joints and bones; it is anti-catarrhal and anti-microbic for the mucous membranes; exfoliant and antibacterial for skin.
The natural sediment of the water mixed with clay is kept, in buckets, in the thermal water to get its properties and heath and then according to traditional natural methods used for mud-baths.
