THE SPA : history
The legend has it that one day Saturn was angry with men , constantly at war with each other , he took a thunderbolt and hurled it on the earth , doing gush from the crater of a volcano and warm sulphurous water which wrapped and everything quieted. That comforting womb were born men wiser and happier . Theatre of the legend was the heart of the Tuscan Maremma, Saturnia, where the water gushes at a rate of 800 liters per second at a temperature of 37 degrees. Legend has it that Saturnia was the most ancient Italian town . What is known for certain is that already existed at the time of the Etruscans with the name of Aurinia , later renamed Saturnia by the Romans . Of its past traces remain in the circle of walls dating back to IV – III century BC , the Roman Gate, built in a former spa, near the parish church, consisting of a square pool built by the Romans.
