(sometimes Bagni Vignoni) is famous for its thermal baths. It was popular with the Romans
(and probably the Etruscans) and rose to prominence again during
the middle ages because of the proximity of the
Via Francigena, the north-south pilgrimage route through the
Italian peninsula. The ancient square pool at the centre of Bagno
Vignoni is no longer in public use, but the scene is extremely
attractive, with old stone buildings surrounding the pool on all
sides. Today, the modern thermal baths are operated by the
municipality of San Quirico d'Orcia and offer a wide range of therapies, including mud baths, for
arthritis and rheumatism.
