The thermal baths of Petriolo

The thermal baths of Petriolo
The first written evidence of the Baths of Petriolo dates back to 1230. Restoration work tookplace in 1273.  In a volume of the History of Siena written in 1433 by Orlando Malavolti, he wrote that during the month of June in 1230 a small amount was paid to Ioanetto Bolitori while accompanying the Vescovo of Chianti to the baths and it resulted that a few days before  the borough of Siena has invited the notary Bonfiglio to make a list of important visitors to the baths. (qui iverant ad balneam”. Some historians believe that the Baths of Petriolo were well known to the Romans. From the State of Siena archives the existence of a holy order of baths in 1292, where it is noted that the original founders of the baths were the Romans who then established the Senese colony.

The antique thermal baths of Petriolo are situated along the Farma tributary, a tributary of the Merse, which is itself a tributary of the Ombrone river.  Having crossed the Siena countryside it flows down towards Grosseto and the Maremma coast. This is one of the more un-spoilt areas of Tuscany and also amongst the more solitary with never ending stretches of oak and chestnut trees from which antique settlements emerge. The thermal baths are famous for their sulphureous water curative properties. The baths of Petriolo were visited by many distinguished personalities, amongst these were representatives of the Medici and Gonzaga families, cardinals and dukes. A first rate visitor was the Pontefice Pio II (Pope) – Enea Silvio Piccolomini.  In 1907 Petriolo was already in the official list of Italian Mineral Waters which was published by the Internal Ministry. Today this old and cramped structure has been replaced by a modern and comfortable thermal bathing establishment furnished with very sophisticated equipment for the cure of the respiratory tract,  locomotive system and for the treatment of skin surgery.

The water of Petriolo, from the baths on the banks of the Farma torrent, flows out of the spring at 40litres per second with a temperature of 43°c. The strong sulphur smell is due to the presence of a high quantity of hydrogen sulphuric (21 mg/l sulfidrometrico). The high level of gas has therapeutic effects on the respiratory system.
