Deer Spring by tobi_urbex 2017 #08

Picture taken by Tobi:


There is a legend going back centuries which made this place in the Italian Alps famous. It is said that a wounded deer took a bath in a spring and was completely cured after. The hunter who had shot the animal three times before saw what happened and spread the word. Soon the legend was sung in a poem, and the healing powers of the spring were known everywhere.


From then on, sick people came here to get cured of their diseases. A popular spa was built you can see on this drone picture.


However, if you are more interested in facts than legends, we also have the historically proven account of this place we are sharing in our video report:
