Saturnia is an ancient village dating back to the Iron Age.
Said to be the first ‘city’ of the peninsula it had its heyday during the flourishing Etruscan-Roman era.
Noteworthy are the Roman city walls and the Church of Santa Maria Maddalena, but the most significant monument is the Roman Gate(Porta Romana).
There are sites of significant historic, naturalistic and tourist interest less than an hour’s drive from Poggio Bertinoe.g. the Argentario Coast (45 km),Monte Amiataat an altitude of 1700 m (45-minute drive), The Tuff or Tufa Stone Cities (Le Città del Tufo): Sovana (25 km), Pitigliano(20 km) and Sorano(30 km). A ‘must see’ and also within easy reach isBolsena and the lake.
Sulphurous water gushes out of the ground at a rate of 800 litres per second and a constant temperature of37,5°, which guarantees the purity of the water.
The therapeutic properties of this water have been exploited for thousands of years and were certainly well-known to the Etruscansand Romans.
The spa resort and its buildings originated in the 30s but only during the last 10 years or so has it acquired international fame and it now exports the mud (fango) and the waters to the United States.
The country house Poggio Bertino offers its guests reduced entrance rates for the spa, and you can get your ticket directly from us.
