Nitrodi spring

The most important of the island of Ischia in terms of water flow and therapeutic validity.

Located in a valley near Buonopane – an ancient village that was once called Moropane – it was already known in Roman times, as evidenced by the eleven marble reliefs found in 1757 and preserved in the National Museum of Naples. They are dedicated to the Nitrodi Nymphs and Apollo in thanks for their healing.

The ancients already knew the virtues of this miraculous water well. In fact, it is a medium-mineral (bicarbonate-sulfate and alkaline-earthy) and hypothermic water; it contains sodium, calcium, potassium, chlorine, sulfur, carbon. It has numerous qualities: it is good for the stomach, liver, intestines, kidney, skin, from which it eliminates any sore or impurities.

It can be reached at the source by taking and along a pedestrian street adjacent to the Ponte di Buonopane, which, among vineyards and suggestions, guides you to the source.
