Diving into well-being and history
The crystal-clear and extraordinarily blue sea is not the only water in Sardinia. The island is also home to thermal springs that regenerate the body and spirit. Fordongianus, in the Tirso river valley, combines the invigorating power of water gushing at 54°C, rich in unique organoleptic properties, with the fascination of a thousand-year-old history and culture.
The therapeutic benefits of the Fordongianus water have been recognised since antiquity. Bathing in these pools can help treat respiratory problems, arthrosis and rheumatism. Don’t miss the Roman thermal baths, dating to the 1st century, where the frigidarium, tepidarium and calidarium formed a curative pathway. To experience the benefits for yourself, you can enjoy the waters of the 19th-century Is Bangius public spa.
Fordongianus has plenty more gems to discover, from the Casa Aragonese to the Church of San Pietro Apostolo and the nuraghe of Santa Barbara. You’re sure to enjoy discovering this unusual and fascinating side of Sardinia.
