Here bobbles out a 37 degrees sulphurous mineral stream from underneath the ground. You can comfortably relax and bath at the Cascate del Mulino as there are many natural pools. The entry is free and everyone can go there, this is a magic place especially out of season, when less people are there.
You can lay here in the warm water for hours. The upper pools have hotter water. At the lower end of the waterfall runs the river Ombrone. Here the warm water will mix with the cold one.
