Welcome to San Pellegrino Terme

Lightly sparkling mineral water was first bottled in San Pellegrino Terme, 25km north of Bergamo along the Valle Brembana, at the beginning of the 19th century.

Thermal baths tourism began late that century, and local investors decided to spend big on new facilities in the early 1900s, creating the massive, seven-storey Grand Hotel (1904) and the exuberant Casinò di San Pellegrino Terme (1907). They face each other over the Brembo river and together form a treasure chest of stile liberty architecture (Italian art nouveau).
