Bagni Vecchi (Old Baths)
The pools are situated at variable altitudes along the slopes of Mount Reit where the hot thermal waters gush out. Its historical atmosphere makes you travel back through time with its century-old grottos, already known since Roman times. The entrance ticket includes a route divided into 6 sectors with 36 different thermal offers for a complete remise en forme:
- San Martino sweating grotto: The Sweating Grotto, constructed in 1827, is a natural humid sauna, exclusive and unique of its kind and consists of a detoxicating route winding through two tunnels that penetrate the rock for more than 50 metres. The typical environment of the ancient Roman thermal baths (Tepidarium, Calidarium, Laconicum, Frigidarium) can be found inside this grotto, although the route is traditionally proposed as a Dantesque journey to the otherworld, ranging from the mild temperature of Heaven and the heat of Purgatory to the broil of Hell. It is advisable to cover the route at a slow pace up to Purgatory to allow the body to get accustomed to the temperature (up to 48°C) and increasing humidity (up to 95%).
- Bagni Medieval (Medieval Baths): a regenerating wellness route, situated in the oldest part of the Medieval Fortress with four different synergic solutions that exalt the peculiarities of the thermal waters (mineral salts and sulpho-bacteria.)
- The open-air swimming pool, where you can enjoy a mild anti stress bath and vigorous hydromassages thanks to numerous nozzles that push the water out at low pressure. You can stay pleasantly immersed in the hot waters (38°C - 40°C), even in cold or snowy weather. A spacious Solarium is located near the little church. You can enjoy a magnificent view on the Conca of Bormio and the surrounding Retiche Alps.
- Bagni Romani (Roman Baths): two wide contiguous baths were constructed inside a grotto already in use since pre-Roman times, where one of the nine thermal water springs rich in natural sulpho - bacteria (natural mud) gush out. The Solarium in front of the grottos of the Roman Baths hosts a large wooden bathtub, completely renovated, which belonged to the Bath of the Archduchess (a building that rose on a field near the Roman Baths and now destroyed) until the end of the 19th century.
- Bagni Imperiali (Imperial Baths): a tonifying route to recover physical well-being and forget the stress of everyday life while regenerating the body, especially after sport activities. The Bagni Imperiali were constructed in 1800 and rehabilitated in 1997.
- Bagni dell'Arciduchessa (Baths of the Archduchess): the ideal route with reinvigorating effects on skin, spirit and mind, with a vast choice of amenities to enhance complete regeneration of the skin while leaving it soft and elastic. The saunas and relax areas are perfect places where you can unwind and relax your mind completely. The Bagni dell’Arciduchessa were constructed after the opening of the Stelvio Road (1825) to guarantee adequate privacy to the members of the Royal family of Austria - Hungary.
