Description

The Thermae of Caracalla were public baths, like today's spas, where the nobles used to relax. They were opened in 217 AD by the order of Emperor Caracalla and ceased to operate in 537 AD. In the central axis of the building it is still possible to see the caldarium, tepidarium, frigidarium and natatio. On either side of this symmetrical structure there are two gymnasiums as well as various other rooms. The history of the glories of the Thermae of Caracalla are written within on huge marble pillars, marble flooring, colored oriental glass, paste mosaics and marble walls, painted stucco and hundreds of colossal statues".
