According to the myth, one day the God Saturn, the Roman Cronus, in his wrath struck the earth with a thunderbolt, causing lukewarm, sulphury waters to spring out of a volcano mouth. From that large water cloud as from a womb the happiest and wisest of men were born, this is why Italy was called saturnia tellus. Romans believed it happened here in the heart of Tuscan Maremma, in Saturnia, where waters spring constantly at 37 degrees C (98,6 F), at a speed of 800 ls per second. But the beauty of Saturnia is not confined to its spa. The place is made unforgettable by the enchanting nature and landscapes of Maremma, a small, ancient borgo of Etruscan origin, the many archaeological sites around, the typical and renowned cuisine, and an 18 holes golf course.
