Terme di Sant'Andrea, relaxation and well-being in the hills, amidst miraculous springs and medieval castles
Perched atop a hill of oak and chestnut trees and overlooking the Taro Regional river Park, Sant'Andrea Bagni, a hamlet of the municipality of Medesano, in the province of Parma, is a spa town known since the 19th century for the medicinal properties of its waters.
Nestled in an enchanting natural setting on the slopes of the Apennines, the Sant'Andrea Spa is an oasis of relaxation.
A valuable natural heritage, discovered by chance
Identified by mere chance by a consortium of Belgian, French and British technicians, who were searching for oil on Emilian territory at the time, there are no less than eight springs that feed the Sant'Andrea Bagni spa resort through an underground journey of almost a kilometre.
A natural heritage that compensates, with the variety of mineral salts that enrich individual compositions and the many therapeutic indications, for a relatively recent spa tradition.
The therapeutic efficacy of as many as 8 healing waters in a single hydrothermal basin
In a retro-style establishment with a large Art Nouveau hall, the thermal baths of Sant'Andrea collect the eight healing waters in a single basin, intended for the treatment and prevention of chronic inflammatory and dermatological diseases. Treatments include inhalations, nasal irrigations, balneotherapy, ozone baths, whirlpool baths, thermal water drinking therapies and water physiotherapy.
Open from March to December, at the Terme di Sant'Andrea you can also experience a range of remise en forme treatments: Turkish bath massages, lymphatic drainage, nutritional plans and personalised specialist visits, with aesthetic medicine and anti-age treatments, as well as water aerobics, gym and vascular courses.
Hilltop tours between fortifications and medieval castles
Exploring the surroundings of Sant'Andrea Bagni is highly advisable: we are at the centre of a defensive circuit of ancient fortresses and castles dating back to the late Middle Ages: you can start from the Pallavicino castle in Varano de' Melegari, which stands on a sandstone cliff, and then reach the Rossi castle in Carona, in Fornovo sul Taro, up to the scenic Torrechiara castle in Langhirano and the manor of Felino, still surrounded by a deep moat and protected by monumental ramparts, now home to the Felino Salami Museum.
The Taro River Park, a paradise for green and sustainable tourism
Bicycle tourists and trekking or mountain bike enthusiasts will feel welcome in the Taro River Regional Park: a natural paradise rich in biodiversity, which runs along the Taro river for 20 kilometres and is crossed by cycle paths and trails also equipped for birdwatching; all this, just a short distance from the medieval court of Giarola, home to the pasta and tomato museums, which are an integral part of the great Parma food museum circuit.
