Terme di Caracalla

Baths of Caracalla

The Baths of Caracalla (Italian: Terme di Caracalla) were Roman public baths built in Rome between 212 and 216 C.E., during the reign of the Emperor Caracalla. Their remains survive to this day.

History

Built between 212 and 216 during the reign of Emperor Caracalla, these public baths remained in use until the mid-6th century. The process of bathing was an elaborate one. A typical Roman male began in the hot bath, moved to a tepid bath, jumped into cold water and then finished in an outdoor pool.
