the mud-bathing

The thermal baths of Abano and Montegrotto are world-famous for mud-balneotherapy. In fact, the thermal mud of Abano Terme is a natural medicine that has no comparison in the world for its properties and beneficial effects. Their anti-inflammatory, analgesic and muscle-relaxing effects are proven by over two hundred years of scientific studies and certified by a European patent (Patent No. 1571203), which officially classifies our thermal muds as 'Natural Medicines'.
