Guarcino is famous for its springs. The mineral waters of the sources of Filette and St. Luke are known for their healing qualities: being very popular since the early 1900s, have been bottled and marketed since 2002.

The Filette water source is 900 meters high and the first historical records date back to 400 BC, when the Romans dedicated it to Venus as a symbol of the bond between the goddess and the life force. Even today, the fountain where the raw water source of the Water Filette is channelled, has a sculpture that bears witness to this particular symbolism.
