In 1716, excavations were carried out, during which the spring and a basin of the ancient Roman thermal baths appeared. At the end of the century, a number of small buildings were built for the medical use of the waters. In 1928 they were declared a public utility, with a guesthouse and chapel. In 1986, the hotel-spa was built over the old bath house, a five-storey building with a semi-basement, where the thermal area is located. In 2005 the thermal spa was renovated with modern facilities combining marble, steel and glass.
