Immersed in the Valle di Bagni, whose name immediately refers to the presence of spring and curative pools, they enjoy both the greenery of the woods and the proximity to the Tyrrhenian coast, which is just one kilometre away.

What to see in Acquappesa and surroundings

The Terme Luigiane fall within the municipality of Acquappesa and are located a short distance from Guardia Piemontese, two places that should definitely be visited during a weekend at the Terme Luigiane.

As its name suggests, Acquappesa (Aqua Pendens) springs from abundant water sources, most of which once descended from the cliff overlooking the town in the form of streams and small waterfalls.

Over time, in addition to its thermal springs, Acquappesa has also become famous for its beautiful beach and the Scoglio della Regina, an iconic symbol of the marina a short distance from the ancient village higher up.

Also worth visiting is the village of Guardia Piemontese, an enclave of Occitan culture in Calabria, linked to the presence of the ethnic minority that escaped persecution by the Waldensians in Piedmont.

The mediaeval village is characterised by its stone houses and alleyways, accessed through the ancient Porta del Sangue, whose name evokes the tragic persecutions suffered by the community.

The most interesting place to learn more about the history and culture of the place is the Waldensian Museum, which documents the history and Occitan language, the only one spoken in southern Italy, so much so that it is called Guardiol.
