The Terme di Saturnia are a group of springs located in the municipality of Manciano, a few kilometers from the village of Satiurnia and Pitigliano. The springs that feed the baths, which are found in the south-eastern valley, cover a vast territory.
One legend, according to the Etuscans and Romans, was that the Terme di Saturnia were formed by lightning bolts, thrown by Jupiter. During a violent quarrel between the two mythological deities, the bolts thrown towards Saturn had missed, causing the formations.
The sulphurous spring water, at a temperature of 37.5 °C, are well known for their therapeutic properties, offering relaxation and well being through immersion. The main thermal waterfalls are the Mill Falls, located at an old mil.
