The Baths of Caracalla, also known as Antoniane, deriving from the full name of the emperor of the same name, represent one of the greatest examples of extremely well preserved imperial baths in Rome.

Rectangular in shape, the baths functioned as a place for bathing, sports and body care and also as a place to go walking and study. The entrance to the structure had four doors, and once entered, the calidarium, the tepidarium, the frigidarium, the natatio, and other spaces stood in sequence. The interiors were characterized by marble columns, statues, mosaics and flooring in colored marbles and in oriental style.

Restored several times, the spa unfortunately ceased to function in 537 AD.
