San Casciano dei Bagni

San Casciano dei Bagni, since long time ago, is a valuable hermal resort; the Etruscan discovered it, and the Roman elevated it to aland of regeneration. The birth and the development of San Casciano dei Bagni are linked essentially to the presence of thermal waters: 42 sources at a temperature of 40C (104F). A stay in San Casciano is not only thermal well-being, but also an immersion in the history of the rural civilization. In the village you can visit the Collegiata dei santi Leonardo e Cassia, with the beautiful Gothic facade, but there is another place that deserves a visit: the castle of Fighine, hamlet of San Casciano, a couple kilometers far from the town. From there, you can watch over a magnificent scene: between the green hills, the blue of the thermal pools. Inside the castle there is the small church of San Michele Arcangelo, remembered already in 1191, perhaps one of the most evocative monuments. The only nave is enriched by two lateral chapels, one of them, dedicated to the Madonna, is decorated on the style of the Cathedral of Siena, with the characteristic black and white colours.
