Thermae



Roman public baths in Bath, England. The entire structure above the level of the pillar bases is a later reconstruction.

The terms balnea or thermae were the words the ancient Romans used for the buildings housing their public baths.

Most Roman cities had at least one, if not many, such buildings, which were centres of public bathing and socialisation.

Roman bath-houses were also provided for private villas, town houses and forts these were also called thermae.
