San Pellegrino, thermal baths and art nouveau style

Description

Situated only 25 kilometres from Bergamo, in the midst of mountain scenery in the Brembana Valley, San Pellegrino became a fashionable and very popular resort during the unrepeatable Belle Époque period. Already by the early twentieth century, San Pellegrino Terme was equipped with buildings and services that amazed visitors and helped to spread its fame.

The Casino complex dates back to 1904, and has a spectacular entrance, a monumental staircase and very beautiful rooms, including a ballroom. The Spa building alongside, surrounded by gardens, had rooms and porticos in which the abundance of marble, mosaics and splendid windows was accompanied by state-of-the-art spa facilities and services.

The colossal Grand Hotel, built in 1905 and with a façade of some 128 metres, overlooks the River Brembo. The art nouveau style was associated with the taste and joy of living of a cosmopolitan society.

 

Its waters

Excellent for combating kidney stones, liver and digestive conditions, the waters from the springs of San Pellegrino have been known since the Middle ages, but it was only in the eighteenth century that their therapeutic properties were recognised and exploited.

Towards the end of the same century and at the beginning of the twentieth century, the town became a first-class thermal centre. The Great War marked a decline in the baths, but the excellent springs were developed further, and today Sanpellegrino bottled water can be found on tables throughout the world.


Le sue acque

Ottime per combattere i calcoli, le malattie del fegato e dell’apparato digerente, le fonti di San Pellegrino erano note già fin dal Medioevo, ma fu solo nel Settecento che si incominciò a sfruttarne le proprietà terapeutiche. Sul finire dello stesso secolo e all’inizio del Novecento la località divenne un centro termale di prim’ordine.

La Grande Guerra segnò il declino delle terme, mentre cresceva lo sfruttamento delle ottime fonti. L’acqua minerale S.Pellegrino è sulle tavole di tutto il mondo.
