The history of the town, which in Medieval documentation appears often with the name of Bagno ad Acqua, was effectively interwoven with that of its thermal rising, already in use in Roman times and which in a description of the XV century appears channelled in an uncovered bath, twice the size of the municipal baths, with two entrances and large flat stones on the bottom.
In the ninth century it was called Castrum ad Aquis. During the war against Florence it was burnt down in 1362. It was incorporated into the Fiorentino dominion in 1406 and then annexed to the Florentine Republic in 1515,which then transferred it to the vicariate of Peccioli and later to the vicariate of Lari in 1776 and it was called “Bagni di Casciana”.
