For thousands of years this water has sprung from the ground. It is about 36-37 degrees in temperature. The water contains calcium hydro corbanate in huge quantities. When it comes into contact with oxygen, the carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide escape and then calcium carbonate settles and forms the travertines (white terraces). The waters are bath temperature and are believed to be of benefit for heart and circulatory complaints in particular. You will be able to walk along the terraces after removing your footwear and even swim in these health promoting waters.
