The territory


Relax Agliano TermeLocanda San Giacomo rises in the historical centre of Agliano Terme.
This small town in a beautifully scenic position, famous for hot springs from which flow mineral waters with extraordinary anti-inflammatory properties, has been a travel destination since Eighteenth Century. The discovery of a Roman tombstone in the area testifies that Agliano was founded by the Romans. The center acquired a strong reputation in medieval times, being the residence of Bonifacio di Agliano.

Relax agliano TermeTwo churches overlook the main square of the village: the parish one, dedicated to Saint James the Greater, which was rebuilt starting from 1657, and the Saint Michael's, now deconsecrated, that conserves an appreciable bell tower in baroque style.

Agliano Terme is part of the site "The Vineyard landscape of Piedmont: Langhe-Roero and Monferrato" inscribed in the UNESCO World Heritage List as a "cultural landscape", since it is a result of the combined work of nature and man. Here, panoramas of carefully cultivated hillsides alternate with valleys to create landscapes of unique beauty, and vineyards stretch as far as the eye can see, to provide a kaleidoscope of shades and tones.

Agliano Terme is only 20 minutes far from Alba, known as the capital of the Langhe region for its privileged position right in the heart of the hills that every year welcome thousands of tourists from all over the world. The precious White Alba Truffle and famous Langa and Roero wines, including the most famous Barolo, are local excellences appreciated around the world.
