Wandering Wednesday – Rome – Baths of Caracalla

Finished and open in 217AD, The Baths of Caracalla were open to the public and free of charge until 600 AD when the Ostrogoths destroyed the water supply. In addition to the usual bathing facilities, there was a library, gymnasium, art galleries, gardens, and restaurants. The complex is on a huge scale and can make you feel quite tiny in perspective. It must have been an awesome sight in it’s day.
