  The Baths of Caracalla, Rome

 
 

 

Public baths formed an important part of the culture of the Roman Empire in Rome, the capital of the empire, 952 facilities were in operation by the middle of the fourth century BC. Built about AD 217 in Rome for the pleasure of the leisure classes, the Baths of Caracalla, which contained space for 1600 bathers, were a later and grander example of these facilities. The huge, vaulted interior contained baths, swimming pools, lecture halls, lounges, and exercise facilities. Once lined in marble, the ruins of the Baths of Caracalla now provide a majestic open-air setting for opera performances during the summer season.
