Grotte di Bagni Caldi

Grotte di Bagni Caldi, Bagni di Lucca

Cave with Therapy Facilities at an altitude of 150m

Bagni Caldi is an old village with a long spa tradition: it was frequented and loved by famous figures such as Lord Byron, Eugenio Montale and Henry James. Here, among woods of fir and chestnut trees, there are two natural steam caves, Grotta Grande and Grotta Paolina, named after Napoleon’s sister. Grotta Paolina is the smaller of the two, but also the most charming. As the internal temperature of the cave changes from one part of the body to another – it is warmer at torso level and lower at the extremities – people with circulation problems can benefit from the positive ef-fects of the waters without tiring their legs. The waters in the cave contain sulphur, bicarbonate and calcium and are indicated for curing a great deal of disorders, especially problems caused by rheumatism and stress. Entrance is only permitted to those using the spa facilities.
