Zone: Casciana - Terme - Pisa
The town of Casciana Terme is well known for the thermal system that take advantage of the Lime-sulfur that is constantly 37°C. Its history is closely linked to the therapeutic properties of water that flow’s giving life to the Spas. The origins of Casciana date back to the Etruscan period as recent archaeological discoveries in the Parlascio.
It is said that the thermal water was discovered by the Countess Matilda of Canossa. She had a blackbird that was pretty old and rundown, with feathers that were turning grey with age. One day the Countess noticed that the blackbird was moving better and its feathers were turning back to a deep black colour and its beak bright yellow. She followed the blackbird when it flew out in the mornings and noticed that every morning he put his feet in strange ‘smokey water’. The Countess tried taking a dip in this miraculous water and in no time drew benefits, so she decided to build tanks which turned out to be the spas that we can admire today.
