La Bollente, Acqui Terme

4.6
#1 of 55 in Sightseeing in Province of Alessandria
Historic Site Tourist Spot
While in the scenic spa resort of Acqui Terme, make sure to stop by La Bollente, one of the town's centerpieces. Built in 1870 and designed to resemble a small pavilion, the fountain in the center of the old town constantly produces thermal water that's beneficial to drink or inhale the vapors. Just bear in mind that the water comes out of the fountain at a temperature of about 75 C (167 F) and it can cause burns if you touch it before it cools down. The piazza in front of the fountain is a great place to soak in the atmosphere of the town, have a meal, or enjoy the sight of steaming vapors rising from the fountain on a cool night. Put La Bollente into our Acqui Terme vacation route planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Acqui Terme.
