Campi Flegrei: its spa and healing waters
Before being a geographic area, Campi Flegrei represents an evocative area of classical mythology. This land with extraordinary natural sources and landscapes was set of many stories described in Odyssey: Lago D'Averno was the Entrance to the Hells, Cuma was the oldest city of Magna Grecia.
The Phlegrean area was the burial place of some of the Giants that Hercules confronted and defeated on behalf of Zeus. The area was called "Phlegrean" (from ancient Greek flegrais = "burning") because of the plagues made to the Giants by the divine thunderbolt and produced eruptions of water and fire. From this its richness of sulfur, fire and warm water among Pozzuoli, Baia and Cuma.
The Ancient Romans chose Campi Flegrei to build their imperial villas and as their place to cure themselves and enjoy moments of relaxation. The spa was a proper meeting spot divided into three sections: frigidarium, tepidarium, calidarium; a path that was very good for the body both in terms of health and aesthetics.
Stufe di Nerone: wellness and history in Campi Flegrei
Its name (that means "Nerone's chambers") is for the happening in this area of the assassination by Nerone to his mother Agrippina. The location was for a long time the sanctuary of vapours and springs antiquity.
The Stufe di Nerone is one of the most important architectural and cultural spots of Italy. It was founded in the II century a.C. with the name of Terme Siviane, because dedicated to Rea Silvia, goddess of fertility, and already at that time one of the best spots to take care of themselves, balancing body and mind (mens sana in corpore sano). During Roman times, the name was Bath of Baia. It hosts many well-known individuals of the time, like Julius Ceasar, Cicero, Seneca, Caligula, Domitian, Adrian and Nerone that used to meet each other in the spa. Already that time, the people used the curative power of thermal water against arthritis.
The Stufe di Nerone or Pozzuoli Bath is still an important meeting spot and it is perfect for a relaxing holiday, thanks to its wonderful wellness paths. Its thermal waters flow at a temperature of about 74°C and are full of precious mineral elements essential to the tone and elasticity of your body, but also great allies for taking care of your rheumatism, arthrosis, rehabilitation.
Terme Stufe di Nerone's philosophy is "totally wellness": as well as for the Ancient Roman and Oriental tradition, care of your body and mind find here their natural placement thanks to its natural environment and therapeutic qualities of its water. In addition, as well as at the time of the ancient Romans, they are not limited to a merely curative function, but also offer a recreational character in virtue of the social importance that the spa has always had.
Its thermal park has a large outdoor space that can be used all year round thanks to the particular micro temperature climate that characterized the geographic area. Inside the thermal park, there are about 20/25 hot and cold thermal springs that form two characteristic lakes that are very different from one another in terms of the appearance and composition of the water. The green areas are very large and characterized by varied vegetation typical of the Phlegrean area. In Summer the outdoor refreshment point opens and there you can enjoy a light and delicious meal and then continue with your day in the spa.
There are two thermal natural pools: one indoor and one outdoor. The indoor thermal pool is a large pool of thermal water at 40°C and the immersion of the body in the thermal pool water has a beneficial effect on the tissues and the muscles, stimulating the physiological turnover of the cells, with relaxing, regenerating and invigorating effects. The outdoor thermal pool has salso-bromo-iodine thermal water with a temperature of 35°C: swimming in the pool or practising some simple exercises are the ideal way to treat the after-effects of bone and muscle trauma, but also for those who want to strengthen muscle tone and joint elasticity.
In the spa, there are two natural stoves, heated by the underlying thermal water. They are proper saunas in grottos! Inside the temperature is around 53°C with a high saturation vapour environment containing vaporized mineral salts. In natural stoves, the therapeutic action (antroterapy) depends on their particular microclimate due to the combination of numerous factors (water temperature and its chemical composition, humidity rate, degree of ionization of the air). It allows solving annoying problems such as rhinitis and chronic sinusitis. The stove favours abundant sweating allowing the water exchange, and at the same time, it exercises a vascular exercise that prevents arteriosclerosis improving the functioning of the circulatory system.
Complementing the regenerating path, inside the spa, there is a beauty centre that offers massages, both postural and relaxing, and beauty treatments.More info❯
