I’d have to agree with Sylvia Plath (RIP) when she penned — “There’s quite a few things a hot bath won’t cure, but so don’t know many of them,” and it's been my experience, that the ultimate hot bath is always a natural hot spring wherever they are found. This certainly is the case with Cascade del Mulino (Mill waterfalls) in Saturnia Cascade del Molino saturnia italy.
Even the ancient Romans knew the value of hydrotherapy and made full use of natural hot springs. Cascate del Mulino (Mill waterfalls) in Saturnia, Tuscany, Italy freely demonstrates that Mother Nature has always held the keys to serenity. It’s a natural hot spring sulphuric thermal bath reimagined in 1800s into a spa. Stunningly beautiful, surprisingly free, simply amazing.
Imagine even in the winter, thermal waterfall ponds with a temperature of 37.5 degrees Celsius (99.5 degrees Fahrenheit) you won’t be cold in the water. What you’ll get from these thermal spring waters is scientifically a combination of sulfur, carbon, sulfate, bicarbonate-alkaline, earth, and a touch of hydrogen sulfide gas and carbon dioxide. This mineral bath is both therapeutic and relaxing -- offering afterwards an almost mystical sense of well-being -- something all of us crave at times in a stress filled modern life.
The waterfalls and pools of Cascate del Mulino are fed by a clutch of springs named the, Terme di Saturnia just twenty minutes away (about 14 miles) and in turn feeding the baths. One of the ancient myths revolving around them is certainly worthy of contemplating while enjoying them. It seems that the Roman god Saturn (Saturnus) grew tired of the constant wars of humans, and sent a thunderbolt to earth that created a magic spring of warm sulphurous water to pacify mankind. Hmmmm. Well, maybe what this old world needs right now, is a whole lotta soaking in Cascate del Mulino. Sounds like a good time to visit, Saturnia, Italy to me.
