Only 500 meters away from the Grand Hotel Duca d'Este, an elegant hotel with wellness center, you will find the spa Terme di Rome “Acque Albule”.
Water from the Acque Albule spring is sulphurous and hypothermal. The spring was so named in ancient times due to the white color of its water (it derives from the Latin adjective “albula” = whitish water), caused by the gaseous emulsion that forms on the surface when pressure decreases, releasing the carbon dioxide and hydrogen sulphide dissolved in the water.
Water gushes to the spa from Lakes Regina and Colonelle, north of Via Tiburtina, at a speed of 3,000 litres per second. The mineral water maintains a constant temperature of 23°C throughout the year.
Chemical analyses in the 19th century confirmed the therapeutic capacity of water at Acque Albule. We now know that sulphur is a powerful natural antibacterial ingredient with important anti-inflammatory effects.
