In 1836 the Grand Hotel Bagni Nuovi was inaugurated, an imposing Art Nouveau building immersed in the greenery of its park, which hosted the great personalities of the Central European Belle Epoque in its moment of maximum splendour. The grandiose Ballroom, with the balcony of the orchestra and the large decorated fireplace fully reflects the atmosphere of the time.
The complex, which was closed for a long time after extensive restoration and expansion works, rediscovered all its splendor and atmosphere in 2004.
