The Caracalla Baths are one of the largest and best preserved ancient thermal complex, built during the Roman Empire.
Caracalla built the once known as Thermae Antonianae in 216 AD, in rectangular shape, typical of the imperial baths.
The building has 4 access doors on the north-east. On the central avenue of the baths are in sequence caldarium, tepidarium, frigidarium and natatio; to the side two gyms and other environments are symmetrically arranged.
A special branch of the Aqua Marcia aqueduct, Acqua Anthonys in fact, was built specifically to supply the Baths of Caracalla.
The thermal complex, restored several times over the course of the empire, was finally closed in 537 AD.
The baths in the Roman Empire were not only intended to swimming and body care, but they were places where they carried out other activities, like study and conversation maybe during the walk in the sumptuous avenues of the complex.
That's why the baths were increasingly constructed as real luxury and comfortable buildings, plenty of space. Some manuscripts found tell of huge columns and marble walls, as well as the pavement in colored oriental marble, rich mosaics, detailed decorations, painted stucco and hundreds of colossal statues and groups, were in all environments, both in the niches of the walls that in the roads, both in the most important halls and gardens.
