About Terme di Caracalla

The Baths of Caracalla (Terme di Caracalla) in Rome were Roman Public Baths or thermae built in Rome between AD 212 and 216, during the reign of the Emperor Caracalla. The baths remained in use until the 6th century when the complex was taken by the Ostrogoths during the Gothic War, at which time the hydraulic installations were destroyed.
