The Baths of Caracalla

The Baths of Caracalla or Thermae Antoninianae, as they were officially called, were built on the slopes of the Piccolo Aventino, not far from the popular district between Porta Capena and the Circus Maximus. Begun in 212 AD, they were inaugurated at the behest of Emperor Caracalla in 216 AD but were completed with the construction of the outer enclosure and the two exedras by the successors of Caracalla, Elagabalus and Severus Alexander.

Simultaneously with the beginning of the works at the spa, a special branch of the Roman aqueduct Aqua Marcia, the Aqua Antoniniana, was created to guarantee the availability of a considerable quantity of water.

Second, for its size, only to the Baths of Diocletian, the Baths of Caracalla remained active until the 6th century AD, when they were rendered unusable by the Goths of Vitige, who destroyed the water systems (537 AD).

Today the Baths of Caracalla are used as an extraordinary setting for outdoor shows, confirming the great fame they enjoyed in antiquity.
