La Bollente, Acqui Terme

(4.7/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Does not show the splendid piazza, but the source to 75 degrees of thermal water with its open air values that allow an aerosol to all passers-by. Great!

  • That suggestion of evening the sulfurous steam that exits the colored Boiling fountain and manholes! Really beautiful!

  • I always day view and summer ... But seen in winter and at night is a fountain. The "boiling" is an octagonal marble edicola surrounding a source from which flows thermal water at 75° sulphurous-salty-bromine-iodine. Many drink it for its healing powers.

  • The square of the boiling is simply magical. In winter the warmth of the fumes of thermal wrap and warm you with their distinctive and healthful flavor. The illuminated square is the perfect frame for the vital and unique fountain. Not to be missed
  • Picturesque in every season: in winter, with natural water vapors to 70 degrees makes a certain effect: to drink it (because this water is rich in virtue ... though a bit schifosetta of taste) bring some glasses (admission is free). It is a symbol of the city, very beautiful, very characteristic, perfect place for selfie
