The name Acquarossa, or "Acqua Rossa" translates directly to "Red Water".  The name comes from the natural red water that comes from springs in the area.

Acquarossa used to have a spa but this closed in 1971.  There is a history of the old spa on the vallediblenio web site (in Italian) and an English translation of the text on my Old Spa page.

I have read online that a consortium is working to re-establish a spa in the area.

Acquarossa which was formed some years ago by the merger of a number of local authorities including Ponto Valentino.
