Soak in the history and healing properties of the regions many mineral springs and historic bathhouses houses, that date back to the 19th century. The rich mineral waters and volcanic soils of the region, along with its cool climate, attracted an influx of Swiss-Italian migrants in the 1800’s, that has led to a strong European atmosphere in the area.
