Dedicated to the wellness of body and soul, the medical and beauty spa 'La Via del Sale,' with its saltwater baths and its former salt cave, skilfully combines avant-garde medical knowledge with water and salt-based treatments. The Monastery of San Maurizio is located along one of the five ancient Vie del Sale or Salt Roads that carried precious salt from the Ligurian Sea to beyond the Alps. With all its oligoelements, salt has always been essential to health treatments. Salt, the heart of our spa, plays a starring role in the Grotta where the highly dense, saline water is ideal for hydrotherapy. Here, exclusive therapies and beauty treatments are offered in perfect symbiosis with the innovative medical centre specialized in wellness. The Grotta del Sale is a natural gorge dug into the rock where salt baths have been created. The combination of the highly mineralized water of the San Maurizio monks and the salt arriving from the Cagliari saltworks in Sardinia has produced highly saline water able to eliminate toxins and ensure lymphodrainage. The Grotta del Sale offers an exclusive regenerating, health circuit. Besides the two salt baths, the Scuola delle Gambe (Legs School) offers specific treatments geared to cardiovascular wellness
