Salus Per Aquam

“It is to the waters that all the happiness of the Venetian character is explained.”


Euganean Hills are compact rocks that arise millions of years ago from a swelling of the subsoil due to volcanic eruptions and magma dating from the depths of the Po Valley. The latter has also created fractures in the rock which has thus allowed the flow of a large circuit of water derived from rain, from the melting of the snow and from the torrents that from the mountain zones enter the subsoil slowly going down in depth and continuing their path towards the valley, always through the fractures of the rocks underground. The high temperature is therefore simply due to a physical phenomenon: the heat of the earth itself. At a depth of 3.000 meters from the surface, the water becomes very hot, managing to dissolve the salts contained in the rocks, thus enriching itself along the way during the 30 years journey.

If Water is life, at the AbanoRitz, since always, Water is Health and Wellness.

At the age of the Ancient Romans, the healing benefits of the “magic waters” of Abano and Montegrotto Terme were already known and for this reason the Montirone was regularly frequented: here the origin of the termalism called Salus Per Aquam, SPA. Nowadays, every hotel in the area has its own well, with hyperthermal salt-bromo-iodic water that flows at a temperature of about 87ºC used for swimming pools, but especially for mud-balneotherapy treatments and inhalation therapies. For these, the Water is cooled (differently to many other thermal zones) at a temperature ranging from 30°C to 38°C depending on the final use. Thermal Water is also the basic element of the process of maturation, conservation and regeneration of thermal mud, patented at European level with classification of “first super” and unique for its benefits and anti-inflammatory properties and painkillers. Moreover, since more than 50 years AbanoRitz has been exploiting geothermal energy and, during the colder months, thermal water is therefore used to heat the structure in compliance with ecology.

Thermal Water of Abano and Montegrotto, a natural anti-inflammatory, has a disinfectant and antiseptic action, as well as stimulating the ciliary apparatus. It is particularly suitable for chronic rhinosinusal diseases and acute respiratory diseases such as:

  • bronchitis
  • broncho pathology
  • sinusitis
  • bronchiectasia
  • hypertrophy
  • rhinogenic deafness
  • common cold
  • pharyngitis
  • laryngitis
  • tracheite
  • influence
  • allergic rhinitis
  • cough

So we wait for you at the AbanoRitz to enjoy relax and wellness in the name of Health!
