Description

These are important ruins of an urban settlement dating to Roman times, which included a number of villas and public buildings such as baths, a temple, a forum and an aqueduct.

The remains recovered include private residences, and parts of a temple (a wall, gallery, fragments of columns, a statue in white marble), water complex (dam and 32 pilasters of stone blocks and a cistern), the forum (two columns of the Tuscan order, remains of houses and streets with pavements), and above all the baths. These were constructed in sandstone. Access was through a doorway with three arches. There are remains of the changing rooms, of the "waiting and conversation” room, an open-air gym, the massage and oil room, the latrines and the baths themselves: three rooms for cold, warm and hot baths, as well as a sauna. Part of the heating system has also been discovered.
