What an amazing place. One of the largest Roman baths in the age of the empire. These ruins give you a real idea of how massive this was as a part of Roman society. Situated near the other great structure of the Roman empire : Colosseum.

Baths of Caracalla

The Baths of Caracalla in Rome, Italy, were the second largest Roman public baths, or thermae, built in Rome between AD 212 and 217, during the reigns of Septimius Severus and Caracalla. They would have had to install over 2,000 t of material every day for six years in order to complete it in this time. Records show that the idea for the baths were drawn up by Septimius Severus, and merely completed or opened in the lifetime of Caracalla. This would allow for a longer construction timeframe. Today they are a tourist attraction.
