Travellers are enchanted by the gently sloping hills and the picturesque landscape which define the Senio valley.


It looks as if during the centuries man has strived to preserve the nature of this enchanted place to valorise and carefully protect its underground treasure.


Mineral water flows from clear springs in the unspoilt countryside. Riolo’s “small mud domes” have been spraying for centuries very fine clay from natural basins.

The first studies regarding the waters of the Riolo Spa date back to the Renaissance, a time of scientific drive and great discoveries, when men of science noticed that many people visited the area to benefit from the waters.


The healing properties of mineral waters and of mud baths became known throughout Europe and famous visitors such as Lord Byron, Joachim Murat, the Bonaparte princes, Pellegrino Artusi and Giosuè Carducci stayed at Riolo from time to time. During the 19th century the ever increasing flow of guests to such an exquisite location required a Spa.


On July 10, 1870 the local town council approved the project presented by Antonio Zannoni for the building of a Spa which was opened July 24, 1877.
