Roma Hamami

English:
This bath house is one of the best preserved examples which survive from the Roman Imperial Period. The building was originally planned as two complexes: the courtyard (palaestra) and the Bath House, both on the same axis with a southwest-northeast orientation. The courtyard preserves only the foundation which measures 56.80x31.40 m and was flanked by colonnades on three sides. Only the corresponding side galleries were divided into rooms. The bath building, which measures 58.20x28.29 m consisted of large halls. The two warm hall (tepidarium) and two exercise halls (ambulacrum) were on either side of the cold room (frigidarium) and the sweating room (laconicum) which formed the middle axis. All these rooms are crowned by the hot room (caldarium) to the southwest. Each of these halls was originally paved with marble slabs.
