There is a wonderful view of Bagni di Lucca from the terrace of Bernabò. The river Lima winds its way between the houses and past the town’s three main land marks: the lovely nineteenth century Serraglio bridge and the elegant villas and gardens of the Corsena and the Bagni Caldi, the historical thermal spa. A stroll through the town reveals an eclectic mix of architecture such as Villa Fiori, Villa Reale, Villa Ada, Villa Reali dei Baciocchi and the Demidoff Hospital, which was built by a Russian prince who regularly came and enjoyed the benefits of the thermal waters here. Here, rain water filters through the rock and gets trapped, until immense pressure forces it out enriched by minerals, crystal clear, odourless and warm.
Not far from Bagni di Lucca is Borgo a Mozzano, home of the noteworthy Maddalena Bridge. This bridge is not only famous for its architecture, but also for the legend which surrounds it.
