CASTROCARO TERME SPA INSTITUTE

Popular since Roman times, Castrocaro’s mineral waters, whose beneficial properties were rediscovered in the first half of the 19th century, have been used continuously ever since to promote health and wellbeing, using constantly improved techniques and treatments.

In 1838, the waters were initially used for therapeutic purposes by Dr. Corrado Taddei De Gravina, a Castrocaro physician and scholar. Then, popularity of the waters of Castrocaro in the medical-sanitary field spread rapidly, so much so that in 1844, a first small spa was built.

At the beginning of the 20th century, thorough studies and research – carried out in collaboration with the Universities of Pisa, Bologna, Ferrara and the Institute of Geosciences and Georesources in Pisa – allowed the discovery of new sulfurous water wells – and began making naturally healing mud, known as ‘velvet mud’ for its palpable creaminess.

Impressive renovations led to the grand opening of the ‘Stabilimento Termale Demaniale’ in 1938, later enlarged throughout the 1970s and 1990s with new facilities offering traditional thermal cures and centers for treating rhinogenous deafness and peripheral vascular diseases, as well as motor rehabilitation Inside the complex there is a thermal treatment center, a thermal spa, a specialist outpatient clinic, a rehabilitation center and the ‘Long Life Clinic’.
