Baths of Caracalla, one of the most imposing monuments remaining today; even in Roman times these Baths were famous for their size and splendour. They were built at the beginning of the third century by the Emperor Caracalla, after whom they are called.
They had room for a vast number of people and had many well equipped rooms and halls. Above all, there were rooms for actual baths, divided into cold, warm and hot baths. In addition to these, moreover, there was a series of places for other purposes for the relaxation of the Romans who visited the baths: gardens, libraries and gymnasia.
Undoubtedly the Baths were very important for the Romans, but when they had fallen into disuse, in a certain sense, they found their continuation in the architecture of the early Christian churches which took their ground plan, not only from the Roman basilica, but also from the baths.
