Valtellina: The SPA resort of Bormio

A view over the landscape around Bormio

The SPA resort of Bormio, Bagni Vecchi, attests man's ability to create something of such beauty on top of a wondrous nature. This place was discovered by the Romans and perhaps even by someone else before them. There are the baths that date from pre-Roman times, from the 1st century BC.
