Battaglia Terme is a village in the Veneto of 3,872 residents, part of the province of Padua, which is 20km away. A river village of the lower Padua area, founded in 1200, everything here is tied to water: it was home to a mill, a paper mill, the sawmill and a mallet workshop. The Museum of River Navigation (Museo della Navigazione Fluviale) holds over 4000 artifacts and the natural thermal cave of Colle di S. Elena was already around and known during the Longobard era. The village is home to important villas, such as the Castello del Catajo, dating from the 16th century, and the Villa Emo-Selvatico, from the 17th century.
