On the slopes of a hill, framed by a forest and wonderful vineyards, you can find the oldest fountains of the Staffora Valley, surrounded by the stench of rotten eggs.
There are four fountains fed by springs and named by the content of their water: drinking fountain, ferrous fountain, magnesian fountain, and finally the sulfurous one. Known since Roman times for their healing properties, the springs were made famous by many doctors. The first one was Teodoro Guainero, a professor at the University of Pavia, doctor and advisor to King Louis XII of France, in the 15th century.
