Abano Terme is the most important and most famous spa of Europe thanks to its hyperthermal waters, known and appreciated since the Protohistory (they spring since more from three thousand years in our territory), and even today source of health and well-being.
Its origins are very old: in the tenth century B.C., Euganeans, then in the eighth century Venetes dived into the lake and into the puddles of Abano spring waters.
They so obtained the « against proof » from the cleaning sacredness of thermal water of APONO God ( » who eliminates
the pain « ), because this water cured numerous diseases.
It is indeed from Apono that diverts the current place-name of « Abano ».
The hyperthermal water is unique in the world, and is defined as “hyperthermal saltbromine-iodine” water, presenting antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties.
It is extracted from its own geothermal well, which is the deepest in Euganean Thermal Basin.
The therapeutic properties of hyperthermal water and mud of Abano are a precious resource in the medical domain.
The Ministry of Health has granted the areas of Abano and Montegrotto baths (PD) the qualification level “1 SUPER”, recognising the respect for natural resources and the strict discipline in the use of water.
The thermal product represents an ancient and effective natural remedy accepted by official Medicine, and Abano baths represent, in turn, a territory of election.
From 2014 on, the Thermalism is considered by World Health Organization a “natural and alternative form of medicine”.
