TERME DEI PAPI (Papal Thermal Baths):
The thermal district of Viterbo us undoubtedly one of the most important in Italy. It was already famous during the era of Pope Gregory IX (1235) who went to Viterbo to cure his calculosis.
The thermal baths of Viterbo are also cited many times in Dante’s Divina Commedia. The curative effect of these waters was so appreciated by Pope Niccolo V, founder of the Vatican Library, that he ordered a building to be erected where he could comfortably spent his stay. From the moment the complex was named TERME DEI PAPI (Papal Thermal Baths).
The Spa Viterbo’s springs, which are about 3 km away from the town, lie scarred round a central area called Bullicame which Dante quoted few times in his Divine Comedy. The romans knew this place quite well, so much so, they built here their spas of which evidence remains to us in the ruins of some monuments.
The benefits of the waters seem one of the indispensable medicines to help retain the bio-psychic equilibrium so often altered by the daily stress.
