Not by chance known as "Holy Waters", the Antonimina Thermal Baths, in the province of Reggio Calabria, represent one of the most popular thermal complexes in Calabria for the curative and beneficial properties of the springs.

We are in the heart of the Locride region, along the Costa dei Gelsomini, at the perfect meeting point between the sea and the crystal-clear springs of the mountain that rises behind the town of Antonimina.

Let's discover together the services and treatments you can take advantage of during an unforgettable wellness weekend at the Antonimina Thermal Baths, one of the most valuable spa holiday proposals in Calabria.

Antonimina Thermal Centre

Halfway between the towns of Locri and Antonimina, this large thermal complex is one of the most popular references for those dreaming of a weekend of wellness and relaxation along the Ionian coast of Reggio Calabria.

In Antonimina, spas and nature are the perfect combination to regenerate body and mind after a period of stress. A true healthy "retreat" that passes through the thermal centre's treatments and packages.

What does the Antonimina Thermal Baths offer? Known since antiquity as "Holy Waters", due to their miraculous curative properties, the springs in this area are mentioned by Pliny the Elder, who praises their benefits, and by Barrio, who, in his work Antiquitate et situ Calabrie, recounts that:

"This town is rich in excellent springs of sulphurous and salty waters, which are useful for many illnesses and, in particular, are beneficial for curing the sterility of women".

Regione Calabria

Today, the Antonimina Thermal Baths are classified as isotonic, slightly sulphurous, thermo-mineral waters with traces of iodine. The springs flow constantly at 36° and are bacteriologically pure, perfect for cures and treatments based on baths, mud baths, inhalations, cleansing and stimulation of organic and immune defences at all levels.

Classic spa treatments can be complemented by aesthetic medicine and cosmetic treatments, as well as pure relaxation programmes for couples.

Around the Antonimina Thermal Baths

What to do and see around the Antonimina Thermal Baths?

After visiting the historic centre of Antonimina, a not-to-be-missed excursion to the summit of Mount San Pietro (better known as Tre Pizzi), whose profile soars behind the small town, is recommended, and in general in the territory of the Aspromonte National Park, within which this pretty spa resort falls.

Nearby, head down towards the Costa dei Gelsomini to visit the town of Locri and the marvellous National Archaeological Park of Locri Epizefiri, which preserves its ancient Greek history.

The modern part of the town includes the Church of Santa Caterina, in Romanesque-Lombard style, the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Mastro and the beautiful Palazzo Comunale "Spinola", in Renaissance style. Among the monuments that recall an important figure from the classical period in Calabria is the Monument to Nossis, the Locrian poetess depicted on the Seafront by sculptor Tony Custureri.
