Montecatini Terme

Montecatini Terme is the most important town of the Valdinievole and has a long history; the beauty of the town is given by the mix of ancient and recent, identifiable in Montecatini Alto, seat of the ancient castle, the true historical center, and the zone of the thermal baths.

At the beginning the only Montecatini was the one on the hill, and the thermal baths were a swamp below the castle. But it was a well-known fact that the waters of that swamp had curative properties, but nobody gave importance to the phenomenon.

In the village you can visit the picturesque Church of Santa Maria Assunta, the Church of Santi Jacopo and Filippo and the Church of San Pietro. Of the many towers of Montecatini, some have been incorporated in the houses; one is near the Convent of Santa Maria a Ripa (16th century).

The thermal waters of Montecatini probably already were known in the roman age, and today the thermal establishments offer a complete system of treatments and natural therapies that satisfy the desire of wellness and relax.
